Reading Strategy—Sequencing

Sequencing events is another strategy that helps us make sense of and understand our reading.  We use this strategy along with retelling after we’ve read or listened to a story.

Here is some of our sequencing work.

This is our visual cue that reminds us what it means to sequence:

We made this poster to help tell others why it is important to sequence events:

We sequenced the events from the story Baabooom!

When we sequence events in a story, the story makes more sense to us.  The events are in a logical order.

At home, have your child retell the events of the day, making sure they are in the correct sequence.

Happy reading,
