How to Make a Sundae Sequencing
The best thing about these free homeschool printables is that they double as an educational activity. Your kids will have so much fun completing them, they won’t even realize they’re learning.
To get started, print out the sentence sequencing pages on regular printer paper. You can staple them together to make a book, or you can give your child one page at a time.
This free printable pack contains two sets of sequencing activities. One is color and the other black and white. Choose which one works best for your homeschool or classroom needs.
These “How to Make a Sundae” story sequencing activities allow kids to focus on each step of the task separately. There are several different ways you can present and use them.
For younger children, I would present the pages in order from beginning to end.
Older children should be able to put a jumbled stack of pages in sequential order on their own. They should be able to do this by looking at the pictures even if they can’t yet read the sentences.
To use the printables, have your children read the first sentence on each page. If your kids aren’t reading yet, read the sentence to them pointing to each word so they can follow along.
Next, have them trace the second sentence. This will help them practice proper letter formation as well as tracking from left to right.
Finally, if your kids are ready, have them copy the sentence onto the blank lines at the bottom of the page. This is a great way to help them develop hand-eye coordination as they look at the sentence at the top of the page and copy it to the bottom.
Once all of the pages are complete, help your child bind them into a book. Then, have them “read” the book to friends and family.
