Transcript of Unit 3 Determine Text Importance/Identify Sequence of Events
SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
You have just described a sequence of events to your partner. When you talk to people, you often describe things that happened in a certain order. Writers do this, too. Good readers know how to recognize a sequence of events in fiction and nonfiction texts. We're going to practice recognizing sequence of events this week.
I see that each picture has a number. I think this means I should look at the pictures in a certain order, beginning with picture 1 and ending with picture 6. If the numbers are steps, and I should look at the steps in order, then I know the numbers are important to understanding these pictures.
Determining important information helps me identify the sequence, or order, of the steps.
First, next, then, and last are signal words to the reader. They are clues that help the reader identify the sequence of events.
Why is it important to recognize sequence of events?
Every morning before I come to school, I follow the same routine to get ready. First I get up. Next I brush my teeth. Then I take a shower. After that I blow dry and fix my hair. The last thing I do before I leave my house is make my coffee.
What things do you to every day before you come to school? In what order do you do these things? Turn and share with your partner at least 3 things you do in the order in which you do them.
What are the steps involved in making a pizza?
When I look at this poster, the first thing I need to do is figure out what they are showing me.
One way I can help myself is to think about what the important information is.
One way I can do that I by paying attention to specific details, such as the number and the order of the pictures.
Figuring out what information is important makes things clearer in my mind.
