It is hard to believe, but a second grader, typically has trouble understanding the comprehension reading skill on sequence. This is the reason why I decided to create an activity that provided hands on and visual ways to show the order of events. This activity includes a reading on how to create a paper plate rabbit. Some of the sequence activities included for the students include: - the opportunity to cut, order and glue sentences. The opportunity to write and order the events using different styles such as ovals, rectangles, etc.
These materials could also be used for any other sequence activity. For example how to make a peanut butter sandwich or an event that happened in a text they read.
This activity could be glued in a construction paper or in an interactive notebook.
This activity also provides a small evaluation at the end. It can be used as an evaluation or just as a practice of different kind of questions that include sequence.
I used with with my own students and the results were surprising from before and after.
