What is learning time and Sequencing in Early Childhood Education?

In the Early years learning time and sequencing includes many concepts including:

• First and Last
• First, next, then, finally
• Before, After
• day, night, day time, morning time, lunchtime, dinner time, bedtime, night time
• to make judgements about how long everyday events take and then compare 2 events to decide which takes longer/shorter amount of time (not using a clock)
• Comparing & Ordering the steps involved in 3, 4, 5, 6 step activities
• Link daily activities to day and night
• Sequence different but obvious ages of people, e.g. baby, toddler, child, teenager, parent, grandparent
• Order the sequence of simple well know stories and nursery rhymes, e.g. fairytales
• “What happened?”
• “What happens first?”
• “What happens next?”
• “What happens last?”
• What happened before ____?”
• “What happened after ___?”
