I cut out the steps and mix up them up in a pile. Next the students have to put them in order (I use the number squares as a prompt for the students). Once it is in the correct order, the students then have to tell me the steps using transition words (transition word cards provided).
**With one group I “hid” the sequencing cards around the room first. I gave them one to two step directions (Example: Find the card that is IN the book ON the shelf. or Find the card that is UNDER the trash can.) and they took turns finding the cards. When they had all the cards, they worked together to put them in order. This is a great activity for targeting receptive and expressive sequencing skills, receptive preposition and working in a group.
Here are examples of the directions I gave. I attached a pdf. (click here)if you would like to print it out. For some of the directions I will place a blank card near the item to check understanding. For example, for the direction, “Find the card that is next to the blue book.” I would put the card next to the blue book and then a blank card on the blue book.
1. Find the card that is next to the blue book.
2. Find the card that is above the light switch.
3. Find the card that is under the table.
4. Find the card that is taped to the back of the chair.
5. Find the card that is next to the stapler.
6. Find the card that is on the white board/chalkboard.
7. Find the card that is in the crayon box.
