Story Writing

Concept: Story Writing through Sequencing

Definition:

  • Every story follows a sequence. Story sequencing is a process to identify the parts of a story- beginning, middle and an end.
  • Sequencing of a story helps to understand what you read.

    Let us have a look at the sequence followed for a story.

  • Read the title of the story and the author’s name.
  • Follow the given format of the story:

Example:

Story Title: Washing the Car

A man sees his car covered in mud. He was puzzled to see how it happened. He asked a passerby if he saw anybody dirtying his car. The passerby informed that another car was speeding that way and crossed a muddy puddle.

Boy

The man decided to clean the car. The man washed the muddy car with a soap and a sponge. He then cleaned it with clear water. The car is clean for the next drive.

  • Sequencing of a story can be done through transition words also. First, Next, then , last and finally are the transition words that can be used to show story sequencing. Use key details from the text to put a story in order.

Common Mistakes

Example:

What happened first? (Beginning)
A man sees his car covered in mud. He was puzzled to see how it happened.

What happened next? (Middle)

What happened finally? (End)
