The youngest students can learn sequencing by ordering pictures to tell a story. You will find several of these activity pages in these Leveled Learning Packs. Beginning readers need to know how to list in order the events from a story or steps in a process. This seems like a simple skill, but anyone who has ever heard a young child tell a real-life story knows that it can be quite difficult for them to remember the actual order of events. It is even more difficult for students to get chronological order from abstract reading material. If your students are having difficulty with sequencing try these activities. After any hands-on activity or field trip have students help you list all of the things you did during that time. Then let them help you order those sentences by writing numerals beside each one. Repeat this activity several times; students will not "get it" if you do this just once. After students have had practice arranging events in chronological order and after they have learned to read a little more, you can create sentence strips for them to order on a chart. Eventually students should be able to do independent work with sentences on handouts. If you just move straight to the handouts, you will have failed to provide your students with adequate background knowledge to do this skill.
