Tip #11 Sequence discussion

Talk with your child or students about the order of events in the story. This can be very enlightening. You might learn something about the story that you never thought of.

How do you do this? You can go about it a few different ways.

You can ask them, “Which happened first, A or B?” “What happened next?” “And after that?” I think you get the idea.

Another approach is to have the child or students retell the story in their own words. Do this without looking at the book!

Any other suggestions? Please share so we all can learn. Thank you
