President’s Day is here again! This time, we have a great President’s Day visual sequencing slide deck for your kids and students.
Many people may not know how important visual sequencing is for a child’s reading, writing and spelling development. Not to mention, their math skills as they progress each year in school.
This President’s Day visual sequencing slide deck is designed to help kids process the information they see on the page and complete the pattern with the missing piece. It may be especially helpful for those kids learning their alphabet and numbers.
Any type of visual activity can help a child boost their visual processing skills.
Visual Sequence Activity Benefits
Kids who struggle with sequencing skills may also have trouble processing the information they see on the page. If a child’s visual system can’t process what comes next in a pattern or sequence, they can use visual sequencing exercises to improve those skills.
A child with a visual processing delay may see what’s on the page, but their brain may have trouble processing or remembering what they saw. These skills can be strengthened with practice and repetition.
Children with visual sequencing delays typically forget the order or can’t process the sequence of symbols, letters, numbers and words.
In any of these cases, you may notice kids:
- Reversing their letters and numbers
- Struggling with the order of math equations
- Having a hard time staying in the correct place when reading (skips words, sentences, loses their place, misses words)
Many of these visual processing delays could go years undetected. Regular eye exams may not catch these types of issues in a child. That’s why you can use activities, like the President’s Day sequencing slide deck, to determine if a visual processing issue may be part of a greater problem.

The President’s Day Visual sequencing slide deck can be used by therapists, parents and educators for kids who are delayed in their visual processing skills. Exercises are meant to be fun and playful. Use these activities in your online sessions or in your in-person therapy practice.
Kids who can’t complete patterns or sequences may benefit from these exercises.
If the child does not know the names of the items in the slide deck, they can give them whatever name is helpful for them to remember the sequence until they become familiar with the objects. For example, instead of “Abraham Lincoln,” the child may say, “the man in the chair.”
The President’s Day visual sequencing slide deck also contains movement cues. The child can perform the sequences without the movements and as they become better at the sequences, the movements can be added. Movement and beats help kids retain the information they learn and the patterns of the objects. Any type of movement that can go with learning will improve the retention of the subject matter.
