 Writing Strategies
 We will focus on helping students to outline their work before beginning any full body piece.
 Students will demonstrate the ability to correctly sequence comic strips based on the idea of sequencing story events, recognizing that stories have a beginning, middle, and end.
 1. Using comic strips, students will learn that stories have a beginning, middle, and end. 2. Students will improve their sequencing skills, by correctly sequencing divided comic strips to complete a short story.
 Comic Strips, scissors, envelopes, and pens.
 "When we write stories, we include three different key parts to our stories. Can anyone tell me what these parts are? Why are these parts important? Today, we are going to use comic strips to put parts of stories in the correct order. We use comic strips, because even these have to have a beginning, middle, and end. They use these small pictures and few words to tell a story or joke. We are going to put these stories or jokes in the correct order.
 1. Read and show the comic strip to the students. 2. Complete one sequencing together, demonstrating the key words or ideas to look for.
 1. Give each student a separated comic strip and have them practice what was just completed as a large group. 2. Monitor each student to ensure that the comic strip is being sequenced together. 3. After the story is sequence appropriately, have the student tell you what ideas or key parts helped them to realize where the different comic strips needed to go.
Checking For Understanding:
 Students will be assessed on their ability to accurately sequence each comic strip. They will also be evaluated based on their ability to correctly determine/ecxplain what key words or ideas they focused on to correctly sequence the story.
 You all did a great job! Tomorrow, we are going to take the great beginning and create the middle part of our story. What make the middle part of a story interesting? Great! The events that take place. Nice job! We will create these tomorrow. Keep checking your punctuation to make sure that you have capital letters at the beginning of your sentences! Nice job today!
 The evaluation will take place on the students ability to correctly sequence the comic strip, and explain what key words or pictures helped them to come to the conclusions they did.
