FREEBIE Friday: Springtime Step-Sequencing Pencils!

I saw these cute spring colored pencils from Creative Clips clip art and immediately thought of a sequencing activity I could make for my kiddos.  Many of my young language delayed children struggle with retelling stories so I begin by teaching them ways to "sequence" everyday activities into 3 steps (modeling a beginning, middle and end of a story).  I made this activity in the same manner.  Because I work with mostly younger kiddos, it helps that we draw each step (I let them "draw" their version...and I draw a picture next to it to illustrate the step), and we put the 3 steps together to create a "visual story" to go along with these fill in the blank pencils.  For older kiddos who can visualize these steps already this is probably not necessary.  So use this activity in whatever way will work for you!

I left a blank space on each pencil in case you wanted your students to add an additional step on their own.

The other thing you can do with this activity is read the steps and have the students guess what activity you are describing.

Note: Congratulations to DGuenther and Cortney M. on winning a free eBook copy of Angie Voss' Understanding Your Child's Sensory Signals from last Freebie Friday's giveaway!  Thank you to all who participated!
