Sequence, history, chronology, are extremely abstract concepts for children. We have inadvertently created a lesson in a pictoral timeline. I have always had a wall of our kitchen full of collage frames picturing family. This helps the girls understand their history and where they fit into the larger picture. It begins at one end and has grown across the wall in (almost) chronological order. We have all our meals and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I believe all children start out as visual learners and this wall is part of their learning from the beginning. I also value story telling to pass on family history and this wall of pictures prompts many.
