After a discussion and work on sequence, students will apply this knowledge to sequencing comic strips through group work.
Primary Learning Objective(s):
Students will apply knowledge of sequence to appropriate reading material.
Additional Learning Objective(s):
0 to 30 Minutes
Materials and Resources:
Comic strips from the newspaper (color), scissors, laminating materials, envelopes with directions on the outside, overhead projector, transparency of sequence words, and reading material.
Technology Resources Needed:
The teacher must have introduced sequence in a lesson using discussion and modeling of sequence. This lesson requires minimal preparation by the teacher. Cutting, laminating, and providing envelopes for pieces of comic strips are the main preparation for the activity.
Assessment is accomplished by watching each group as they proceed to place comic strips in order. Also, the teacher may use reading material that uses sequence to further assess students' understanding of sequence.
This lesson can be modified for those students with an understanding of sequence by taking reading material from the basal reader and making strips from sequence patterns, then cutting those apart for reassembly.

for students with identified learning and/or behavior problems such as: reading
or math performance below grade level; test or classroom assignments/quizzes at
a failing level; failure to complete assignments independently; difficulty with
short-term memory, abstract concepts, staying on task, or following directions;
poor peer interaction or temper tantrums, and other learning or behavior problems.
