Kids read, cut, paste, and draw to sequence the pages in these high-interest fiction and nonfiction mini-books that progress from easy to more challenging sequencing formats. As they interact with the stories to order events from beginning to end, children develop essential skills they need for understanding sequence, such as identifying context and picture clues, making predictions, drawing conclusions, and using key sequencing words. Helps boost comprehension, critical thinking, fluency, and vocabulary, too. Great for ELLs!
How to use this product:
Does It Really Matter?
Does it matter whether students rinse their hands before or after washing them with soap? Does it matter which items of clothing they put on before others? Talk about why following a logical sequence is important in some situations and not in others. Then invite students to give examples of events or situations in which order does and does not matter. (Examples in which order does not matter might include the sequence in which foods are eaten during a meal or choosing which homework to tackle first.) Record their examples on a two-column chart labeled “Order Matters” and “Order Does Not Matter.” As students share, invite them to explain why the order does or does not matter.
