Kindergarten Sequencing Activity Using Books
Learning about Kindergarten by reading books are a great way to help young children preparing for preschool or kindergarten. To help promote comprehension and sequencing, you can do this simple picture activity with any book. Here is an example of this that I thought was really neat. What a great way to reinforce reading and enjoying books in a fun activity. It was a take home activity that the children could do with their parents. I'll post pictures to see the cards, however this is just a post to share what can be done with any book. I do not have copies of the pictures made from this particular book. It was an activity shared by my daughter's kindergarten teacher.
