How to Wrap a Gift Sequencing Worksheets
This packet of Sequencing Activities focuses on putting an event in sequential order of time. In this case, your Kindergartner, First Grader, or Second Grader is wrapping a gift!
This is a fun sequencing activity for the Christmas season or before a birthday.
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 Wrap a Gift 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 Wrap a Gift 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 Wrap a Gift 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 is inside the box? To whom are you giving the gift? What will be the reaction with the gift is opened? Are you excited to give the gift? Do you think the recipient knows what is inside?
4.) How to Wrap a Gift Tracing Sentences – Have your child trace each of the given sentences describing each step of the wrapping 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!
Make sure you talk about that pesky consonant team wr that makes /r/ since the w is silent. Make a written list of other words that start with the same wr team such as wreath, write, wren, or wrench.
Then read the list together. Have your child underline the wr in each word as he says the word aloud.
5.) How to Wrap a Gift Writing Page – Use the picture prompts to write sentences independently about wrapping a gift.
6.) How to Wrap a Gift Cut and Paste Activity – 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.
