Product Description
Thanks for your interest in my When will it be Spring? Story Sequencing Cards that correlate with the popular children’s book by Catherine Walters.

I find story retelling & sequencing works best as a teacher-led, whole or small group activity.

This download includes:
- 9 story sequence cards (color)
- 9 numeral and 9 ordinal cards (b/w)
- 3 character cards (color)
- 2 title cards (one color, one b/w)
- 1 author and 1 illustrator card

I read When will it be Spring? to my class over and over throughout the week. Once children are familiar with the text and images, I use the sequence cards as an engaging and interactive math activity. My students take great pride in retelling the story through sequencing Alfie’s actions. I hope your students looooove using these cards as much as mine do.

{Tip 1} I place adhesive business card magnets to the back of my cards. Doing so helps me create a really fun whole group, small group, or individual center activity utilizing my magnet board. The cards also work well with pocket charts.

{Tip 2} Use the character cards to begin a discussion about opposite, sizes, and colors. They can also be printed and worn as tags. My students really enjoy retelling the story as a play for the rest of the class. We take turns being actors and audience members.

{Tip 3} As time goes on, the background images change on the “Alfie goes to sleep” cards. Use the changes to bring science/weather into your lesson plan.

Happy Retelling & Sequencing,
