Order Matters! Have you ever forgotten an ingredient when following a recipe? Maybe the cupcakes didn’t rise or the recipe turned out slightly different. Something just wasn’t quite right. Well, there are many activities to help your child be an active participant as he or she is learning sequencing skills. Here are a few ideas! The Exerciser…build an obstacle course with your child in the house or outside. Crawl over those pillows, go under the bridge made out of chairs, and shoot a basket. The Chef…find a recipe with pictures to make a yummy dessert. The Gardener…teach your child how to pot a plant. The Organizer…make a visual schedule of your child’s day highlighting big events (i.e. getting dressed, breakfast, school, dinner, bath, story, bedtime). The Scientist….do a science experiment related to your child’s interests. No matter which activity you choose, remember, after the activity is done re-tell it using sequencing terms (i.e. First, Then, Next, Last.). Practice sequencing at your child’s level, such as 2-step tasks, 3-step tasks, 4-step tasks, etc.
