Story sequencing is a fundamental reading comprehension skill that helps students better understand texts. In this lesson, your class will read "The Three Little Pigs" and identify the beginning, middle, and end of the story.
Introduce the lesson with a discussion about story sequence, or the order of events. Potential questions include: Have you ever read a story that had lots of things happen? What helped you remember what happened in the story? Do you remember what happened first at the beginning? What happened in the middle, or what led to the events at the end when the story was over?
Explain to your students that they will read The Three Little Pigs and put the story's events in order.
