Strip StoriesExplain to the students what is involved in sequencing a strip story. Elicit from the students the language they need to negotiate sequence.
- Rewrite a known story or account.
- Place each sentence of the story on a strip of card or paper.
- Mix the strips and distribute them to the students.
- Each student reads out their strip and the whole class/group then discusses and works out how the strips should be assembled to form the correct sequence of the story.
This can be varied by asking the students to memorise the sentences on their strips and then telling their sentences to the rest of the group. The students must now re-arrange themselves, rather than the strips, to reassemble the story or account.
