Spring Directions - Temporal directions

Learning and following before/after directions can be difficult.  Here are some tips for working through these. (The directions are upside down so you can read them and your child can follow along while working across from you.  These before/after directions are mixed up. 
 
If your child is having difficulty, do all those directions with "before" in the middle of the sentence.  These are the easiest ones because the direction will be followed in the order it is said.  Then move to "before" at the beginning.  This is more difficult because it changes the order the direction is followed.  
 
After works the other way around. Begin with "after" directions at the beginning. "After" at the beginning is followed in the order it is said.  
 
Yes!  They are confusing!  Have fun playing around with before/after.
