This bundle includes a 100% digital sequencing activity paired with a fully printable version of the same sequencing tasks-- both ideal for kindergarten and first grade students (or reviewing with second grade students). This summer-themed bundle is ideal for teachers who want to be prepared for both distance learning and in-person instruction and makes a great end of the year activity.
Both versions of the tasks allow students to practice sequencing events in a story and writing first, next, last sentences, but they are arranged differently to maximize student engagement in two different formats. Both versions of this sequencing activity are summer themed, so they are ideal for the end of the year or summer school activities, but they can definitely be used any time of year.
The fully digital slides allow students to interact with the story events by clicking and dragging the appropriate image to the appropriate box (First/Next/Last) using their mouse (or finger, for ipads or touch screens). After successfully ordering the pictures, the next slide is a follow-up writing activity where teachers have the option of having the students create three sentences to describe the events (First..., Next..., Last...).
For the printable version, students will identify which picture scene came first, next, and last and they'll cut and paste the appropriate image to the corresponding box (First/Next/Last). This is great fine motor practice as well.
After successfully ordering the pictures, the second half of each page is a follow-up writing activity. Students create three sentences to describe the events (First..., Next..., Last...). Lines are provided for students to encourage proper letter formation (so this is also a great handwriting activity for students who need extra handwriting practice).
This digital version is simple enough to execute that even preschoolers engaging in distance learning or hybrid learning can manage the technology, but I find "first, next, last" to be a skill primarily taught in Kindergarten and First Grade. The printable version is great for in-person instruction (and provides additional fine motor practice). It can also be a helpful activity to send home in packets for distance learners who have difficulty accessing technology. Having both the digital and printable versions is ideal for teachers who are concurrently teaching in-person and distance learners.
*The digital activity was created using Google™ Slides, but it will also work with PowerPoint. It may be compatible with other software, but Google™ Slides & PowerPoint are the only ones that have been tested and that I can guarantee.
Note: If you don't want both versions of the activities, you can purchase them individually as well (but you do get a significant discount when they are bundled together). You can find the Digital Summer Sequencing Activity - First, Next, Last here and the Printable Summer Sequencing Activity here. The formatting is significantly different between the two versions, but the graphics/scenes and concepts are the same.
