Overview:

Sequencing words are an important part of story writing. Help your second graders write better stories by introducing them to sequencing words with this free English lesson plan. Students first learn how sequencing words are used, then write their own stories using these words. Finally, students put jumbled stories in order by using the sequencing words as clues. Kids also get to illustrate the stories at the end of the lesson.
