Word Processing - First, Next, Then, Last

Assignment: Students practice typing word processing using the First, Next, Then, Finally, and Beginning Middle, End, sequenced writing formats. Students may type these examples as written, or use them to model their own words and sentences. Be prepared to assist with spelling if students write and type original sentences. Students should strive to complete their assignments in single session.

Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.1.3 - Common Core
