Let’s Make a Turkey!
Today’s activity is a fun way to get in the Thanksgiving spirit while working on the skill of sequencing!
Sequencing is the ability to arrange in a particular order. It is an important component of both comprehension and expressive language. Putting words together to make a correct phrase or sentence, understanding and executing directions with more than one step, and retelling a story are all skills that require sequencing.
