Students will be able to identify the correct sequence of events in a story.
Students will be able to discuss events in a text with sequencing words using a graphic organizer.
Tell students today they'll talk and write about the order of events from this text in groups and as a class. Have a student read the student-facing language objective: "I can talk about events with sequencing words using graphic organizers."
Circle the key words (talk about, sequencing words, graphic organizers) and allow students to define them and sketch a picture to represent each term.
Distribute an index card to each student and ask students to set a goal for their performance in class. Provide an example, such as, "My goal is to answer every question in a complete sentence."
Read aloud the story in the On the Court worksheet.
Gather information about their background knowledge by asking them basic comprehension questions surrounding the text. For instance, "What sport are they playing and how do you know?"
