Sequencing Activity For Brown Bear Book

Math Pickle has a fun way to practice patterns and sequencing using the Brown Bear, Brown Bear book. I took the original PowerPoint and changed it some so that it worked better for my class. exactly with the story (download HERE.)  
After reading the book and viewing the PowerPoint the kids then made their own sequence on a sentence strip using the images from the book (pdf below)  After that they wrote the correct color word under each image and for a challenge my higher kids tried to write the animal names above each image. Please note that the pdf is designed to be cut into four different strips (4 kids can use one page.)
Another idea I had is using the iPad for the kids to practice sequencing and retelling the story using the educreations app. I copied the images of the characters from the PowerPoint and added them to my iPad. Then I loaded them into educreations and had my son retell the story. Check out an example here.
