Why use sequence puppets? Students can learn, identify, retell, revisit, and review the series of events or sequence in our real world.
How can you and your students use sequence puppets?
You can use them with a favorite book, poem, or song.
Students can use them for procedural writings.
Have students put them to put in order of the events.
Students can retell and review the sequence of events. (Example: First, the bird made a nest. Next, the bird laid eggs in the nest. Last the eggs hatched.)
Students can use them in centers, with a partner, and individually.
They are great to use at home to review with parents.
How do you create sequence puppets?
Sequence puppets are easy to assemble, just print as needed, have students color, and cut. Then tape to a popsicle stick or a short straw. (Cutting straws into halves work great, too!) The list of ideas don’t have to stop! You can glue them to sentence strips as headbands, glue them to interactive notebooks, or to strips of cashier tape or construction paper. The list of ideas can go on and on! A writing template and a cut and paste sheet has been included.
