"Super Sequences" is a mini-unit designed for students in Grades 2-4 to teach them how to write instructions in a logical order. Help your students learn to sequence events using temporal words: FIRST, NEXT, THEN, SECOND, AFTER, and FINALLY.
This is a great project for the beginning of the year, beginning of the semester, or any time you need to slow down and review this vital skill! This lesson teaches terms and words helpful across the curriculum, and allows students to synthesize their thoughts in common vocabulary!
Included in this product is:
● A 'how to' sheet for teachers explaining each item
● Color-coded transition word posters for the whiteboard, or bulletin board to guide students as they write
●A student planning page
● FOUR different choices for good copy paper
● A class book cover page, if you choose to bind all of the stories together into one fun book!
Although this lesson specifically covers CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.2.3 - it is a valuable skill in other grades as well, as using transition (temporal) words effectively is a key component of clear writing!
