Students with language delays often have difficult understanding “before” and “after” in relation to sequencing events whether in a story or in verbal directions. “Before you take out your math book, please turn in your writing journal” can be a confusing two step direction for students with language delays. These same students also have a difficult time knowing which thing Johnny did first in this sentence: “Johnny bought bread after he went to the library.” Many rely on word order to give them the answer, which is not correct. This packet is designed to help teach these students how to use and understand “before” and “after” in relation to sequencing events.
