3rd Grade Reading - Sequence of Events Lesson
When you read, pay attention to the characters’ thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and how they affect the sequence of events.
Early Saturday morning, Josie woke up with a big grin on her face. After what felt like forever, it was finally her birthday! She crept out of her room and down the hall toward the kitchen. Every year on her birthday, her family made her a delicious pancake breakfast.
When she looked in the kitchen, no one was there. The house was silent. Slowly, Josie turned around to go back to her room. Her shoulders sank low, and she stared at the floor as she walked.
“Happy birthday!” her parents and sister yelled from the hallway.
Josie jumped at the sound.
“We wondered where you went!” her mom said, holding a tray of pancakes.
Josie was grinning again as she said, “Thanks!”
