SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS IN A STORY IS THE ORDER IN WHICH EVENTS HAPPEN.
clue words, such as first,next,then, and finally are often used to signal the sequence of events. dates and times can clues. sometimes, no clue words are used at all.
directions read the following passage.
First my parents told me they were going to start looking for a new house for us to live in. did i want to move? no way! i was perfectly happy in our old house. i had friends next door and friends across the street,and i liked my room. i didn't want to go to a different school.
then my parents said they'd look for a house in the same neighborhood so i didn't have to change schools. at least that was something. so after looking and looking, they finally found a house they liked. but it was in a different town. i had to change schools after all.
