This activity has been designed to enhance student understanding for sequencing story events as per the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). It can be used as both a direct instruction activity or as skill practice at a literacy station or reading center.
I have found this to be successful when used as follow-up at a listening station. It is a one-page document for 6 story events. Three of the events are given with the missing dates while the other three events must be written by the student for the corresponding dates that are given. For differentiation, I would have my above or beyond level students write and illustrate additional events on the back of the sheet and I would provide my below level students with the missing dates and events pre-printed so that they can match them to the corresponding information.
