Sequential Order

Ordering the events of a passage in sequence is an important reading skill that you will use across the curriculum and in everyday life.

 Math – Solving problems in sequential format  Social Studies – Learning sequential events in history  Language Arts – Writing a “How To” paragraph by placing steps in sequence  Science – Proving a scientific experiment by using sequential steps

Definition: Sequential order describes the way that events follow one another in a story or passage. Signal Words in the passage might include time-order words such as now, when, after,while and during. You will learn to place events in sequential order even though some of them may be described in the passage as having already happened.

Steps to Determining Sequential Order:  Read the passage first.  Consider how the sequence of the details relate even if the events are given out of order.  Highlight and number the events in the correct order.  Reread the events in the order in which you wrote them, to ensure that they make sense and follow the order of the passage.

Julie woke up early that morning to finish reading the play. During auditions, Julie read a few scenes and did a monologue. Auditions for Fame were held Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. in the auditorium. At the end of auditions, Mrs. Martinez announced that callback would be posted outside her door on Monday. As she walked into the auditorium, she grew nervous, but once she saw her friends, she relaxed a bit. At 9:30 A.M. her mother drove her to school for the audition.

On Saturday morning we visited the White House. More than 58,000 names of American soldiers who died in the war are carved into this memorial. Finally our day ended at the Tidal Basin where we rented paddleboats for a ride on the water. Last weekend my history class visited Washington, D.C. The statue of Abraham Lincoln is 19 feet high and faces the Reflecting Pool, another attraction in D.C.
