“Sequence 123” allows students to learn the skill of sequencing pictures to then tell a story. Print, cut and laminate each set of cards and matching prompt cards.
Students get a set of 3 pictures and decide which order they should be in: Which picture is 1st, 2nd and then 3rd. If students have difficulty sequencing the pictures encourage them to look at the characters, events and movements within each picture.
Once students have put the pictures into the correct sequence use the matching prompt card to complete activities about the picture set. Prompt cards include:
“Tell the story”- Students need to make a story about the pictures starting with a clear beginning sentence to match the 1st picture, a middle sentence for the 2nd picture and to end the story, a sentence to match the 3rd picture.
“Predict what will happen next” - Encourage students to add a final sentence to the story by “guessing” what might happen next in the story. Use the extra prompt of imagining there is a 4th picture to the sequence.
“Wh questions” - Ask the student 3 questions related to the sequenced picture set.
There is also a printable sequencing sheet included for those students needing to practice writing sentences and stories. The printable sheet has space for students to position the sequence cards and then write a story with a beginning, middle and end sentence.
Sequencing cards and telling stories are also great to use when working on generalising articulation skills or focusing on fluency in stuttering therapy.
A great, hands on activity for students who are seen individually or in groups.
