Reflection: Student Ownership Mentor Text: Sequence of Events - Section 2: Developing Writing Skills


I noticed students needed suggestions on other transition words that denote time order.  So, I distributed a list of Transition Words to help them get started.  I advised students to focus on the transition words on top of this document because they were focusing on time order or sequence of events.  Students also followed the author's modeling in the Very Hungry Caterpillar as reflected on this student sample.
