Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Sequence pictures and comment on them

Commercially available sequencing pictures

Photo-copied pictures from a favourite book

Photos from an outing

  1. Give the child first 2 then 3 pictures to sequence appropriately. Share talking about the pictures first then see if the child can put them in order.
  2. Ask the child about the first picture e.g. 'Look.... who is this' 'Look.... what's happening?' etc. Can the child answer? Give a prompt if needed.
  3. Stick the pictures into a scrap book. Can the child show an adult or peer and comment on the pictures.

You may need to model this skill for children ie talking about what is in the picture.

Encourage children to give the information about their pictures to others who are not already 'in the know'! This is motivating and can make more sense to some children.

Child's own drawings
