Comprehension Activity

 

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Snow Sequencing Activity: 

Sequencing is important in helping beginning readers comprehend what they have read. In this activity, your kids need to recall the order in which the old lady swallowed the parts of a snowman.

 

Using links and connecting the pictures together will help your children to develop their fine motor skills too. 

 

Why Are Fine Motor Skills Important?

From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, kids use their fine motor skills everyday as they are learning to read and write.

 

The development of the small muscles in the hands and fingers in coordination with the eyes is important in not only children’s learning but also in their everyday life.

Next, laminate the cards so your kids can use them over and over and cut them apart. Finally, punch holes on all of the black dots.
