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. The main idea of each story included in this resource are as follows: -Baby refuses noodles -Girl blows balloon -Girl blows candles (birthday cake) -Boy dives in swimming pool -Rabbit pulls carrot -Fireman rescues kitten (stuck in a tree) -Chameleon catches a bug -Dog plays with a pillow -Dog jumps in pool (with the kids) -Boy sleds (down a snowy hill) -Aliens land on a planet -Cat and Dogs (game parody) -Sleeping cat catches mouse -Boy Lights Fireworks -Boy Fishing -Flea jumps into dog -Frog leaps over worm -Girl grooms a dog -Monster destroys building -Girl and Boy playing video games -Man grows a beard -Elf kid finds a treasure chest -Crow eats corn -Chef makes French fries -Gardener makes bush sculpture -Girl ghost scares girl (Halloween) -Boy paints a picture -A Growing Parrot -Wave destroys sandcastle -Santa (Mario, video game parody) How to Use: Simply print, laminate then cut the stories apart.

Matching Uppercase and Lowercase Letters (Fishing for Letters)

Alphabet: This is a wonderful way to get students to practice their letter identification and sounds. Simply cut out the alphabet fish cards and place a paper clip over each card. Fishermen (kids) will use their fishing line to catch a fish. The fishing lines can be bought commercially or made with a short stick, 20 inches of store string and a small magnet for the fishhook. Each child gets a turn trying to catch fish. If he can call a word that begins with the consonant sound on the fish he has caught, he may keep the fish. If he is unable to think of a suitable word he returns the fish, face down to the fishpond. This activity is for both small and large groups and is self-directed. Enjoy! Nicole A Teacher's Idea
