Sequence, three steps, real photos, beginning sequencing, first, next, last, real life scenarios
Sequencing and three step sequencing is a very important skill for students to learn. If they have poor language skills, referencing the background knowledge of what happens first, next, and last is very difficult for them. I have many students who have difficulty sequencing at the simplest level-this is why I created this unit. I have included many different ways to teach first, next, last so that you can choose the way that is best for your students. I have also included a writing sheet to help them describe what is happening in each picture-which would be the next step for this goal. There is a storage card to hold the cards when they are not in use.

"So excited to have these sequences for my lower kiddos! Practicing sequences with illustrations or things that aren't everyday events is so much less functional that using everyday events and actions!"
This unit contains 20 different real life scene pictures (3 x 3 cards) with three steps in each scene. The scenes are:
washing the dog
baking a cake
eating an apple
eating a meal
building a snowman
growing a flower
cleaning up toys
making a PB&J sandwich
making a bed
carving a pumpkin
washing the laundry
riding a bus to school
a day in the life of a puppy
building a sandcastle
making a pizza
Print out step cards, picture cards and 10 copies of the storage card on white card stock.
Laminate each page and add soft Velcro to the step cards.
Cut out each picture card (you may want to number them in the order they appear on the back of each card to help you, if needed.) and add rough Velcro to the back of each card.
Put the three pictures of the sequence on the table in front of the student with the chosen step card. Assist the student with which one would happen first, second, and third if needed to teach this skill. There are 20 different sequences in this packet. After the student has mastered this skill—move them up to describing and or writing a sentence about each picture. I have included a data sheet to help you keep track of their progress! I would work on 10 each day and then the next 10 the next day of therapy (easy percents!).
