Learn the meaning of 'after'


Why is this important?

‘After’ relates to something happening or occurring later than something else (e.g. put your shoes on after your coat; number ten comes after number nine). This is a key concept when learning ordering and sequencing skills and also in relation to time.

What to do

  • Gather together some pictures of children carrying out two different actions (e.g. eating dinner and riding a bike).
  • Ask the child to put the activities in order. Link the two pictures (e.g. ‘Mimi can ride her bike after she’s eaten her dinner’).
  • Ask what Mimi has to do first. This requires the child to understand that the second part of the instruction has to be performed first.
