This Paper Chains Sequencing Center is a perfect way for young students to strengthen their fine motor skills while practicing important beginning literacy and math skills. Making paper chains is satisfying and engaging activity that is sure to become a favorite center.
This set includes both number and sentence sequencing strips. The number sets have ten strips per page (1-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc.) up to 100. There are also pages for skip counting by 10s, 5s, and 2s and a page for beginners that can be cut in half to make a chain with the numbers 1-5 and 6-10.
The sentence sequencing pages each hold two scrambled five-word sentences. The teacher can prep these ahead of time by cutting the pages in half. These sentences are simple and are designed for beginning readers. Each has four high frequency words and a noun with a picture clue.
For students in need of a greater challenge, there are story sequencing strips. These consist of three-sentence stories (three per page) that need to be put in sequence. Three pages contain the transition words, first, then, and last. Four pages contain stories without the transition words.
This set includes blank paper chain templates as well. These can be used in writing activities with students or teachers can fill them in with additional stories or sentences.
When printed on colored paper, these chains make fun decorations for the classroom!
