Manipulatives are a natural, effective way for students to sequence sentences. Students put the title card first and then arrange the 7 sentences in sequential order. Manipulatives allow students to keep rearranging until a story makes sense. The activities build comprehension skills and provide worthwhile reading exercises.
The 24 sets in Sentence Sequencing A contain topics that are appropriate for younger students (everyday experiences, true animal tales, fables, humor). All other Reading Manipulatives comprehensions products are informational text, but this product contains both fiction and nonfiction.
Manipulatives build key comprehension skills by providing extensive practice using structured reading selections followed by activities that check comprehension. The manipulatives are ideal for fostering the cooperative learning that is so valuable for advancing viable text comprehension strategies.
