Every story needs an order of events, but how do we know what comes first? As simple as this seems, it's important for scholars to break apart story lines to analyze the logic in event sequencing. Choose a fiction book to read aloud, first asking kids to predict what it is about from the cover. After explaining sequencing in books, lead scholars to understand the ways they sequence events every day. How do they know what comes first when they tell a funny story? Read the story and then brainstorm as a class to record major events on chart paper. Encourage the terms beginning, end, and middle as the class recalls the storyline.
