Who is this for? These cards are great for the teaching of sequencing and narrative skills. This activity can help students grasp the idea that things happen in an order. Students build and sharpen their logical skills as they study the pictures and put them in order using sequencing words and numbers. What you Get: This set includes 16 stories in 3-step sequencing and 4 storiesin 4-step sequencing. There are sequencing sheets which are a black and white version of the same stories for students to cut out and paste in their notebooks or on colored sheets to show the correct sequence. I also included optional notebook sheets. As an extension they can write a sentence about each picture. The colored cards make a great center activity.

Rights and Responsibilities of a Child Posters and Notebook Size Prints

Just like adults, children also have rights and certain responsibilities that come with them. These printables highlight 12 of the rights and responsibilities explained in the UN Charter. I created these posters with kid-friendly graphics and simple sentences to make a clear distinction between both terms. There are 12 Rights and Responsibilities that come in black and white and color. These posters work well as notebook pages or anchor charts for social studies or character education lessons. I included mini version for you to use as reading cards also. This set works well with Children’s Day which is recognised on various days in many places around the world, with Universal Children’s day celebrations or it can be used all year round to enhance social skills.
