- Visual discrimination
- Left-to-right sequencing

Download and print free story sequence cards HERE.
- Story sequence cards
- Lay out the cards horizontally in mixed order on the workspace. “These cards tell a story.”
- Arrange cards in order of sequence, left to right
- Return to tray one card at a time, starting at top left
- Return tray to shelf
For older children who are reading, you can print each line of a well-known poem or rhyme on a sentence strip, scramble the sentences, and allow the children to order the sentence strips.
Write a number on the back of each card so the child can flip them over and check their work at the end.
