Worksheet Overview

When we are doing a longer piece of writing, it is important to sequence sentences in the right order.

One idea needs to follow another in a logical order so that it makes sense.


This is important when we want to write about something that happened or tell a short story. 


These events are sequenced in the correct order:


         Waking up                        Going to school                            Going to bed

alarm clock               school                        man in bed   


These numbers are sequenced in the wrong order and do not make sense:

Two   eight   three   six   one   four   seven   five   ten   nine


These numbers are sequenced in the right order:

One   two   three   four   five  six   seven   eight   nine   ten


We can sequence short simple sentences. 


mum and daughter cooking     bowl of soup


They cooked the soup.  They ate it for lunch.


The sequence is in the correct order as you need to cook the soup before eating it.


In this activity, you can practise putting words and sentences into the correct sequence so that they make sense.
