Transcript: ENGLISH RADIO PROGRAMME OUTLINE
Key Activities: Sequence of Events
Do you like eating cooked rice? Have you seen your family members preparing a pot of rice to cook over the fire or stove?
If you have, you know that you have to follow the right steps in a proper order from start to finish to prepare the rice. When reading, you need to follow a certain order as well. The events of a story from FIRST to LAST is called a SEQUENCE OF EVENTS.
When you read a story or text, things are happening in order so that you can make sense of all the happenings.
For example, when cooking a pot of rice, you have to follow certain steps before the pot of rice is cooked. Let’s take a look at some words that help show us the order of events and point out when something happens.
The four words for today are: first, next, then and finally.
These words are important in helping readers decide when an event happened. When reading a story, you can look for these time order words to work out when the events happened in relationship to each other. This means how they were connected to each other in order.
Activity 1) In this text about hand washing, you need to identify and write down the time order words used in the text:
Text: Hand Washing
First, wet your hands in order.
Next, run your hands with soap.
Then, rinse your hands with water.
Finally, rub your hands with a clean towel.
Activity 2) Draw pictures against each of the time order words that you have written down. Draw what it tells you in the text that happens first, next, then and finally.
Activity 3) Draw what you do when you wake up in the morning before going to school.
What do you do first?
What do you next?
