Tell The Story - Oral Language Sequencing

Tell The Story - Oral Language Sequencing
English Creating Literature
View Curriculum Codes   

On each card, students are presented with 3 images in chronological order. They are then required to either tell the story orally. You can incorporate the words 'before' and 'after' to consolidate this concept of time or to practise forming complex sentences. e.g. The man mixed the dough before he put the bread in the oven. The man ate the bread after he took it out of the oven. Another alternative is to separate each card and ask students to place the cards in chronological order before telling the story.

I'm constantly on the look out for teaching ideas around oral language. This resource is fantastic! I've already got heaps of ideas of how to use it in the classroom just from looking at it! THANKS
