What is Sequencing and why is it important?

Sequencing means being able to arrange language and actions in the correct order. Sequencing is an important skill to learn and is something that we use daily without even thinking about it.

Some examples of sequencing include:

Following directions - being able to understand a direction and to follow the steps. For example, take your plate to the sink, rinse it off, put it in the dishwasher.

Retelling a story - Telling a story in the correct order is important, so that the listener can follow along and understand what is going on. When retelling a story using sequencing, someone tells the story with a beginning, a middle and an end.

Keywords that help sequence a story are:

  • First, Second, Third

  • First, Next, Last

  • Before, After

  • At first, Finally

Knowing what order to perform actions. For example, if you don’t put toothpaste on the toothbrush before you brush your teeth, you might not get the same result!
