Product Description
Students can use this hand-out to plan out their thinking for a story. The hand-out reinforces the use of a sequencing word (first, next, finally, etc.) to denote a new event happening in a chronological ordering of events.

Students add a beginning, a two part middle, and an end. The large squares can be used to illustrate the event, the arrow boxes house the sequencing word, and the lines below hold a short phrase about that part of the story. This planning sheet would be the basis for the students to then expand and elaborate their story/thinking.

I have found that with the arrow boxes, the students always remember to use a sequencing word. Planning this way reinforces this habit and makes students more likely to also use a sequencing word in their subsequent drafts.
