Lesson Plan : Sequencing Sentences

Teacher Name:
 Grade 7-8
 Language Arts

 Sequencing Sentences so that they make logical sense and tell a story
 "sequencing" students are learning that sequencing means that they are "putting things in order" for a particular purpose.
 To help students recognize when events are not in logical order in reading material and in their own written work
 1. Students will read the sentences on the worksheets and number them so that they are in logical order. Students may have help as they are still learning this skill.
 worksheets titled "SEQUENCING" (top RH corner of the brown table by the overhead) Overhead projector
 Write these sentences on the overhead ___ Finally, Julio trudged slowly home from school. ___ The clock seemed to tick ever so slowly. ___ "Julio!" he heard his teacher say sharply. ___ He flicked the tiny paper wad at the girl two seats away
 1. Make sure you read the sentences more than once to the class with some animation. 2. Ask them if they are in the right order. 3. If not, how would they change them? 4. Call on students and decide as a class if their suggested change is correct or not. 5. Finally number all sentences correctly and reread the story again
 Have Lawernce pass out the first worksheet. Refocus students on you and guide them through the first two groups just as you did with the sentences on the overhead.
 You can help students with reading words they don't know. Rudy and Karen have the most difficulity and will require help from both you and Ms Lightwoods.
Checking For Understanding:
 When everyone is finished, call on individual students to give you the correct order of a sentence. If their answer is incorrect, ask why they chose that sentence and explain why it is incorrect.
 Remind them that using logical order in reading and writing is very important. They will be asked to read their own written work and check that their sentences are in the correct order.
