When you have your kids make a Cinderella story sequencing crown, they’ll sequence events from the story to make a paper crown to wear.
Story sequencing helps children identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story. It also helps them retell those events in the order in which they occured. The ability to sequence events in a story is an important comprehension strategy for readers.
Cinderella Story Sequencing Crown
Add this fun story sequencing activity to your Cinderella book-based activities to help young readers focus on details in the story.
Print one crown and one set of sequencing circles for each student. There are six sets of sequencing circles on the page to save on ink and paper. Just give each student one strip of circles.
Find a version of the story to read to your child (or students). As you read the story, have the students color and cut out sequencing circles.
Student should also cut out crown and the two additional strips.
Student should follow your directions and glue the characters on to the crown in sequence (you can use the sequence the characters appeared in the story or you can make up a sequence).
Example: Glue Cinderella on first to the number one spot. Glue the stepmother on second to the number two spot. Glue the fairy godmother on third to the number three spot. Glue the prince on fourth to the number four spot.
Finish up by assembling the crown. Glue strips together and fit crown around student’s head. Cut off the excess. Secure with tape.
Encourage students to use their crowns to retell the story.
