I can use text structure to understand the story. Authors use text structure to organize information in a nonfiction text. Sequence is one kind of text structure. Authors who use sequence to present information in time order and use words that signal time. (years, dates, first, next, then, last, after)
What is a word to signal the beginning of a sequence?
Which word can be used to signal the next step in a sequence?
