Sequencing is a key concept in math as well as story comprehension.
Illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz.
While reading the story, point out the sequence of events in the pictures. Encourage your child or students to tell the story using the words "first," "next," "then," and "last."
Draw a timeline for the story. For example, at 5:00 the friends arrive, at 6:00 they eat pizza, and so on.
Clip out a favorite comic strip from the newspaper. Cut the comic strip into separate frames and ask your child (or students) to place the pieces in the right sequence.
