Examples of Picture Sequencing Schedules
Daily Routine - Schedule
we will read a story (point to the picture of a story)
we will have a snack (point to the picture that represents snack) and
we will go outside (point to the picture that shows outside)
At the end of the day, review the schedule again: “First we did…, then we….,next we…, and last we……” This will also help them to use past tense verbs totalk about their day.Picture Directions – Schedule
Increase children’s independence and use of print by providing visual directionsfor activities.
, chose an activity for the class or for a centre and break it down into parts,if necessary.
chose/make one to four pictures that depict each step of a task. Forexample, if the children are to make a cloud, they may need to follow thesesteps: First, draw a cloud. Then, glue on cotton balls. Also, have an exampleof what the finished product will look like.
provide your directions using pictures or objects. Your first picturedirection might be a line drawing of a cloud with a crayon glued beside it.Attaching the crayon object shows them the object that they need and whatthey need to do with it (draw a cloud). The second step will be some real cottonballs and an empty bottle of glue or a glue accessory glued beside it (glue onthe cotton balls).
Use the picture directions to increase independence in the classroom. Forexample, beside the door, have a set of pictures that will remind the children tocheck themselves before leaving. For example, post a picture of mittens, hats,and boots.
Demonstrate to the children how to follow these types of picture-directions.Use the words: First, then/next, last. Soon, they will become familiar with whatto do with picture directions when come across them in the classroom. Tryhaving the children make up their own picture directions for special activities.
