Hey guys! I just wanted to stop by quickly to share a little bit about one of my favorite retelling activities - sequencing!
Sequencing is something we do quite a bit of in kindergarten, and I love it for a variety of reasons. Not only does it help kids retell a story, but it is perfect for training students to go back to a text. So often, it's impossible to remember the exact order of something that happened in a story, so we make a big deal out of going back and looking in the book.
In October, we sequenced some of my favorite stories! The Very Busy Spider, Bug Pumpkin, and The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything are perfect for this skill and they are books the kids love! We always sequence with a big group chart first while retelling the story, then the kids get an individual sequencing page {and we make a big deal out of going back and looking at the chart}.

This month, we'll be doing sequencing activities with some of my favorite Thanksgiving read alouds. Here are a couple of pictures from stories we sequenced last year.

My class always loves these activities and I truly think it helps them with their retelling! I have four different packs in my TpT store for sequencing, and I also finally bundled them! If you buy the bundle, you get whole group chart pieces and individual sequencing pages for 17 stories for only $12!

I would love to hear more about how you work on sequencing in your classroom and be on the lookout on my FB page...I might just be giving a bundle away!


  1. Every time I read a post of yours, it makes me want to be back in Kindergarten!

  2. I second what Jennifer said. You're a kindergarten rock star ;)
