Sequencing can be a tricky skill to learn in Pre-K and Kindergarten. We can teach this skill by taking everyday tasks that the kids are already familiar with and breaking them down into simple steps.

“Getting Ready for School” Sequencing Activities

In Pre-K and Kindergarten, one of the ways we practice sequencing is by having lots of conversations about the steps we take to complete common daily tasks. This may include the steps students take when entering the classroom and unpacking, washing their hands, or even doing routines at home like getting ready for bed.

These super fun “Getting Ready for School” activities includes sequencing cards, a mini-book, and 2 cut and paste printables!

Sequencing Cards

The sequencing cards are perfect for using in a pocket chart. I like to start by talking about the fun pictures and introducing the sequencing words on the cards.

When the students are ready they can come up and place the cards in the pocket chart in the correct order.

Cut and Paste Sequencing Activity

The cut and paste printables make a perfect no-prep center activity or morning arrival task. Plus, with 2 versions included, you can pick what works best for your students!

For this activity, the kids will start by identifying what is happening in the fun pictures. Then they will read the sequencing words (first, next, then, and last) or numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th) and cut and paste them in order under the pictures. It’s such an easy way to practice scissor skills while working on sequencing!
