T: “When I read a story I am thinking about the order things happen.  For example using yesterdays story I am going to use my fingers to identify the order of the plot.  Watch how I show you the beginning, middle, and end using my fingers to remind me the order in which the important things happen.   

*Use transition words and have students point out to them when you use them using a non verbal strategy like showing the number on their fingers of the transition word you used.
