Sentence sequencing follows a logical series of events that keep readers riveted on the printed page or digital version of a story. Teachers often overlook the importance of story sequencing. It definitely helps improve comprehension and helps students begin the process of drawing inferences. They also help students form organization skills. When you are first exploring this skill start small and build up. I would start by having students order two parts of a story and then progress on to three and four. Then continue to build up until you are working with several paragraphs. Teachers should make sure that students are presented with clear sequences that only have the possibility of driving in one direction.
Turn logic on its head by explaining to your students the importance of developing sentence sequencing skills. Sometimes it is hard to determine the intended order of a story, but these worksheets will get you focused on determining themes of a story and order placement. The Easy Teacher order of events worksheets provide students with 15 teaching tools that improve sequencing skills. Perhaps the most difficult module presents your kids with a story and they have to rearrange paragraphs to sequence the story properly. Another worksheet asks students to write two sentences, review the sentences, and then write two more sentences that logically follow the first two sentences.
