Sequencing: Holiday Style

Hi, Everyone! It's Jaime from Bright Concepts 4 Teachers.
These last few days before holiday break can be overwhelming to say the least. Last minute rehearsals for the holiday show, assessments, gift wrapping...oh, and quality instructional time! The last one may be the hardest to achieve. 

I wanted to find a way to review my students sequencing skills before we left for break. I decided to use the book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bell by Lucille Colandro. 

My kiddos colored an cut out the story sentences and glued them in order. They worked in pairs to check each other's work before they glued them to the paper.

Then, my students wrote about their favorite part of the book.

They colored the old lady and described their favorite scene. They made a cute display in our room.

Enjoy! Happy holidays to each and everyone of you!
