Here is an easy and simple discussion-generating activity designed to be left out in the children's department. But, since this a Flannel Friday submission, of course you can also do this as a flannel story at storytime! Print out the pieces and laminate them. Then attach magnets to the back of the pieces and set out a magnetic cookie sheet
or oil drip pan
. Nearby, put up a sign explaining that the idea is for the parents and kid to discuss the sequencing of their bedtime routine.
If you want to use this idea as a felt board, download patterns
from Storytime Magic
(where I found the inspiration for this idea). I used clipart from Microsoft instead.
This week's Flannel Friday roundup will be hosted by Mollie

Oh this is a super great thing to have for kids to play with at the library! So many kids with autism/SPD/other social issues have trouble with transitions and sequencing. When I was a behavioral therapist we used sequencing activities like this all the time to teach social skills.ReplyDelete
This would also make a super sweet craft. Parents could customize it based on their home routines, too!ReplyDelete

Thanks so much! I'd love to hear more about your past life as a behavioral therapist sometime. I was inspired by an article I was reading on storytimes for kids on the autism spectrum.
Katie, making it a craft is a great idea. I will try to remember to make and post coloring page version.
I pair a similar idea with the Napping House (more sequencing) and How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight. Makes a fun time for the Kinders.ReplyDelete
