There are many ways to practice putting events in order: cutting comic strips apart and having children put them in correct sequential order, write lines of a favorite nursery rhyme on slips of paper and have child put the rhyme in correct order, etc.
Since we have been making treats and baking, I thought it would be fun to make a sequence of events activity (free download) using one of our favorite recipes: No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.
Here are instructions for the work: Print out downloads (all are free). Have a child read over the control card that explains how to make no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. Then, place the control card upside down to the side of the workspace. Place the blank recipe sheet on the workspace (laminate for durability)
|Blank recipe card|
Cut apart the second page of the download (free) to create the cards that will be placed in the correct spot on the recipe sheet.
|These sections are cut apart to create cards that will be placed on blank recipe sheet|
The third page is the control page so child can check his/her work.
The child stacks the cards to the right of the blank recipe sheet and then picks up cards one at a time and places them in the correct order/place on the recipe sheet. The workspace should look like this:
|Place cards on blank recipe sheet in correct order|
If the child is young, you can remove the blank recipe sheet and have the child match the cards to the control card and then advance to the blank recipe sheet once they have had lots of practice.
I have also created no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookie nomenclature cards (free download) to go along with the recipe sequencing work:
