Sequence of Events

Sequence of Events

Understanding the sequence of either a fiction or nonfiction text is a key fourth-grade reading comprehension skill. Whether your child practices how to identify the beginning, middle, and end of fictional texts — or uses a graphic organizer to order events in a nonfiction text — it's important that they understand that grasping the sequence of events is paramount to understanding a text. Given that many children struggle with this skill, provide reinforcement with a fun activity, such as creating a timeline to represent the sequence of a select text.
