Put the cards in order. As your child grows, it is important that they learn about sequence of events. With the Speech with Milo: Sequencing app, they will learn just that. Kids will learn about what a sequence is, and then be tested by putting event cards in their proper order through drag-and-drop. What comes first, then second, and finally third?
Immediate feedback. Kids need to know immediately whether what they did is right or wrong. Speech with Milo: Sequencing gives children immediate feedback as they are trying to put together the sequence. If a card is in the wrong spot, they will get a buzz. If it's right, there will be an burst of applause. It's rewarding and motivating, and helps kids learn quickly.

Build basic sequencing skills by ordering three cards showing Milo and Melvin performing a task. For example, cards showing Milo “Washing Hands” and “Going to the Movies” are presented in random order. The child is tasked with putting the cards in order by dragging the images into the appropriate box (numbered 1-3). Once the child has put the cards in order, they are provided with the option to play the animation demonstrating the sequence of events. The app is provided with configurable options to view hints, hear the sentence aloud, ‘success’ sounds, etc. Forget those $15 Sequencing cards at the educational stores- this is much more fun for your child.
