Students will be able to organize events in sequence and can recognize when an event or story is out of sequence.
Sequencing refers to the identification of the beginning, middle, and end of a story. Students will look at questions they should ask themselves to organize a story they've read. They will also review transition words and talk about how narrative stories always have a beginning, middle, and end.
Students will look at questions they should ask themselves to organize a story they've read. They will also review transition words and talk about how narrative stories always have a beginning, middle, and end. They will see how an event (a flower growing) can be sequenced in writing. Next, they will write about a time they were lost. They will brainstorm the events, transitional words, and organize each event to match each transitional word. Then, they will form one logical narrative.
Students will identify the beginning, middle, and end of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." They will also read a story about going to the park with friends and sequence the events. They will then read a story about Super Kid that has been rearranged. They will put the story parts in the correct order.
Review sequencing with ten questions about transition words and the steps to sequence a story. They will also read a passage about Mr. Matters and put the events in order.
Have students recall why being able to sequence events in stories is an important skill for reading and writing. Lastly, students will read a short passage about Jean and her brother going to their grandma's house. They will sequence the events.
