What teachers have said about this resource:

My Third Graders loved these! It's a unique way to reinforce sequencing skills, and my kids absolutely adore task cards! It's a nice way to differentiate and allow students to work at their own pace. Thank you! -Emily D.

These task cards provide so many different ways to practice sequencing. Making it a competition between groups seems to be a student favorite! -Nora R.

Sequencing is the first skill we teach in our Reading series. My students were given 5-6 cards a day (in a group) to complete and turn in on Friday. Since it was a group activity, most students received 100%. You will be satisfied with this purchase. -Pamela D.
