Every week we have a new literacy skill that we focusing on in Literacy workshop. This week our mini lessons are based on sequencing. I took four big pictures that went in order and had the whole class work together to put the pictures in the right order. Then as a whole class we told the story.
After this activity I put in the learning to sequence picture card game into out literacy workshop. I had students work with me one on one putting the four pictures in order. They turned the pictures over to make sure they were correct.
After students checked their work they turned the pictures back over and they told a story in their own words of what is happening in the pictures. Then students practiced reading stories on their own and answering sequencing questions.
