Sequence


Time, ('things' happening in a series of 'events' based on elapsed time), is a difficult concept to teach and in a basic classroom setting it is frequently limited to instruction in how to use a clock or watch to identify the time of day. Timelines are used in an attempt to instil an understanding of the passage of 'time' but for the child who has not yet understood linear sequence, mastering 'time' in all its senses, is an impossible task.

Ours is a linear society. We organise our calendars, our schedules, even many of our languages, in a linear fashion. In order to function successfully in such a society, a child must have an understanding of 'Previous and Next'. This is a fundamental mathematics skill and also required for the sequences of letters in a word and words in a sentence.
