Hi Theresa,
One of the easiest things I do to get them to understand sequential movement
is to make a flip book using rubber stamps. I have a bunch and parents wo are
"into" rubber stamping are always happy to toss you their extras. have them
pick one and use it to move across the page horizontally, then vertically,
then diagonally, then spiraling. Then on the back they have to use
Hope this helps
