This Chronological Order Text Structure Package includes two resources for teaching the text structure of chronological, or sequential, order - the set of Chronological Order Task Cards, and the Chronological Order Slide Presentation.
The PowerPoint Slide Presentation explains the concept and includes examples and student practice slides. There is also a fill-in notebook page for students to complete as they view the slides.
The Task Cards Set includes thirty large cards with a variety of activities designed for middle school and upper elementary students.
The slide presentation is great for introduction or review and whole-class practice. The task cards work in a variety of situations including small group or individual practice, classroom games, centers, and stations.
Both resources address the concept of identifying chronological order, using text evidence to list events in order, using graphic organizers to illustrate the text structure, and identifying key terms. With a variety of activities, they work well with kids at various skill levels.
These resources support the Common Core standards for reading informational text, identifying text structures, using text-based evidence, and reading proficiently with understanding.
For practice with other text structures and other reading skills, see: Reading Skills.
