We are learning about sequence of events in our reading curriculum right now. We have talked about how authors use signal words such as first, next,then,after, and finally to help readers understand sequence. Recognizing sequence helps us, as readers, follow directions, learn steps in a process, or understand how an event unfolds over a period of time.
One of our sequences was a "how to" poster. We learned how to make pine cone bird feeders by following a sequence of events. Today, in class, we actually made the bird feeders.
We started with beautiful pine cones from Eastern Washington.
We tied them with string, added frosting, and rolled them in bird seed.
I'm sure our little bird friends are saying thank you, on this snowy day!
