Susan Berkowitz’s I Heart Sequences

Have you ever thought about just how important it is to be able to sequence events?  We ask students to do this all the time.  

What happened first in the story?  
Who won the second battle? What did they do next?
What step do you take first in this task?
For some students sequencing the steps or events is very difficult, and they need additional practice.  Providing that practice with some familiar events can make it easier to get started.

Remember, take it one step at a time (pun intended) and keep on talking!
