Sequencing of Events - Activity

Sequence Flashcards

Everyday events like catching a baseball, going to school and drawing a picture are represented in these sequence flash cards. They are for three-step sequencing of events that are familiar to children.  I made them in black and white also and included a sequencing writing sheet. It is available here at my TpT collection.

Martin Luther King Jr. Picture Books


MLK day is observed on the third Monday of January each year and it's almost here! This is a quick list of picture books about Martin Luther King Jr. for kids that are engaging reads for children across different reading levels. These books provide a lesson in refusing to give into hate and violence. These issues can be difficult to teach your students, but having a book as a guide helps tremendously. Books like these can serve as conversation starters and they can provide a joyous lesson of hope.

Sequence Puzzles - Fall Themed

Sequence Cards - Fall themed

These are Fall themed sequence puzzles made for three-step sequencing of everyday events that happen during Thanksgiving and Fall/Autumn. It has 36 puzzle pieces to form 12 puzzle strips. Your students can sort them starting with the first strip, putting the three pieces together in the right order, study what's happening in each picture, then write about it in the lines provided on the sequence mats. I would highly recommend this set as an introductory lesson for sequencing because they are clear and simple and the puzzles are self correcting.  It is available here at my TpT store.

The mats and puzzles are in both color and a black and white version bundled in a zip folder.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
