Study Sheet for Sequencing

What is sequencing? Sequencing is a pattern of shapes, number, letters, and other items.

Let's look at this pattern:

A B A B ______

What would come next? A is the answer.

Let's look at this pattern:

1 3 5 7 ______

What would come next? 9 is the answer.

Some of these patterns will have the letters or numbers in order. They will need to write the next letter or number that comes in the alphabet.

Example: A B C D ______ ______

Example: 1 2 3 4 ______ ______

What would come next? E and F are the answers.

You need to keep these patterns simple for the pre-schoolers to understand them.

This is a worksheet on letters and numbers. You can also develop patterns of shapes and colors.

First, you will explain about sequencing and give them examples. You can use my study sheet that explains sequencing. You can also write examples on the board and explain sequencing. Have them tell you the answers.

After they seem to understand the concept, you can give them the worksheet.

You need to guide them as they work through it so they understand what to do.

This worksheet can be used for kindergarten age, too.

Grading

You can reward preschoolers for participating in class and doing the worksheet. You can make a chart with their names for your files and write who understands the concept of sequencing.
