I am back today with the next worksheet packet in the Christmas Sequencing Activities series. These packets are fun to make, and my 1st grader is loving them!
These sequencing activities are a good mix of writing and reading. If your young learner doesn’t have much handwriting stamina, just move on to one of the reading activities and vice versa.
My 6 year old and I are working on one of these packets each week of Christmas School. Make sure you check out the other themes!
This sequencing set includes the following themes:
– How to Buy a Christmas Tree
– How to Decorate a Christmas Tree ➡️ This post!
– How to Wrap a Present – coming soon!
– How to Make Cookies – coming soon!
🎄 Browse through the multitude of Christmas Worksheets and Activities here at Mama’s Learning Corner! You will find Nativity Worksheets for K & 1st Grades, Label the Picture pages, Christmas Fun pages (dot-to-dots, mazes, etc.), coloring pages, and MUCH more!
How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Sequencing Activities
This packet of Christmas Sequencing Activities focuses on putting an event in sequential order of time. In this case, your Kindergartner, First Grader, or Second Grader is decorating 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 Christmas Sequencing Activities packet includes 6 different activities:
1.) How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Reader – Cut the pages and place the pages in the correct order. Then read the mini 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 Decorate 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 if you’re using this in a classroom or co-op setting.
3.) How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Sequencing 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. Then have him tell the events of the story to you orally.
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 – what kind of Christmas tree is being decorated? Is it a pine tree or a fir tree? Are the lights colored or white? Large bulbs or small? Are the ornaments all round balls or is there a variety of designs? Were the ornaments purchased or received as a gift?
4.) How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Tracing Sentences – Have your child trace each of the given sentences describing each step of the decorating process
Take the time to point out capital letters, punctuation, transition words, consonant blends, vowel teams, difficult vocabulary words, and any other teachable points you see!
5.) How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Writing Page – Use the picture prompts to write sentences independently about decorating a Christmas tree.
6.) How to Decorate 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.
