    Look up your state's content standards for language arts: chances are they're spelled out by grade.

    Odd. There's probably a state reading teachers' Web site, or perhaps information for parents on the state department of education Web site, that might shed some light.

    Hi! I did my student teaching in 1st grade and I think they should be able to handle this. Once you read the story, maybe if it is not too long you can have them all read it with you. Then talk about the sequencing. First, Next, Then, Last. You can call on students to have them tell you what happened first, then next, and so on... all the while modeling how to write a summary of the story? Our school district used Houghton Mifflin and this was totally first grade stuff. Good Luck!

    What about reading the book "The Very Hungry catterpillar" This is a sequencing book.

    And after reading the book you can act out the story on a flannel board (if you have access to one) and then have the student cut and glue the story into the right sequence.
