Sequencing: order the events

Overview

When you read a story, pay attention to the order of events. What happened first? What happened next? If you understand the sequence of events, you will be able to understand the story better.

Download our Sequencing activity below.

Look at the three images. What order do they go in? Write 1 next to the image that happened first. Write 2 next to the image that happened next. Write 3 next to the image that happened last. Write a sentence below each image to explain what's happening.

Deep Dive

Read our report on the Science of Reading. Research-based reading instruction must incorporate the 5 pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This report provides an easy to understand overview of each of these pillars and explains the important connection between how the brain learns to read (the Neuroscience of Reading) and how we teach children to read (The Science of Reading Instruction). It also explains why helping children build connections between letters and sounds, through phonics and phonemic awareness, is so crucial for the developing reading mind. This report is perfect for sharing with colleagues and friends!
