I am super excited about this brand new set of Christmas sequencing activities! Today, I am publishing the first of four sets of sequencing activities that your young learners will be sure to love.
My first grader and I will use one of these packets each week during our annual Christmas School. Yes, we will do a variety of learning activities, and this is just one of the things I will add to the mix.
I will have the other packets ready quickly – within the next week – so make sure you check back often for the others.
This sequencing set will include the following themes:

How to Buy a Christmas Tree Sequencing Activities
This packet of Christmas Sequencing Activities focuses on putting an event in sequential order of time. In this case, young learners are buying a Christmas Tree!
This type of practice is perfect for ordering events based on time.
The transitional words first, next, then, and last are used to help students place the events in the correct order.
Note that the wording of the sentences are intentionally similar across this entire printable activity to help instill fluency and familiarity.
This Sequencing Activities packet includes 6 different activities:
1.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Reader – Cut the pages and place the pages in the correct order. Then read the booklet and color if desired.
Note that the last page includes a set of directions for your child to complete, so make sure you leave that OUT of the booklet. Don’t staple it in, as it is much easier to complete if the half-page is beside the booklet.
2.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Posters – Place these colored posters on the wall to help increase a print-rich environment, or consider them large “cards” to arrange on the table in the correct order.
You could also staple these posters down the side and create a large Teacher Book.
3.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Cards – Cut out each card, along with the transition word labels. Have your child place the cards in the correct order with the matching transition word.
I also included the labels ‘second’ and ‘third’ if you would like to use those for this activity.
This is also a great activity to have your child’s imagination run wild with what takes place at each step! Have your child elaborate – why did they choose this particular tree? How much did the tree cost? How did they get the tree home? Did they also buy a wreath?
4.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Tracing Sentences – Have your child trace each of the given sentences describing each step of the tree buying process.
Take the time to point out capital letters, punctuation, transition words, consonant blends, vowel teams, and any other teachable points you see!
5.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Writing – Use the picture prompts to write sentences independently about buying a Christmas Tree
6.) How to Buy a Christmas Tree Cut and Paste – Cut out each of the pictures and glue in the correct order. Then use the word bank to complete each sentence.
Just scroll down the page until you see this particular packet.
