Writing In Sequence

The beginning is a very good place to start! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you how to write in sequence, so that your writing happens in the correct order. First, discover what it means to write in sequence and when you might need to do it. Next you’ll find out how to start off, when to use a numbered list, when to write a paragraph, and how to turn one paragraph into the other. You’ll also learn about transition words, including what they sound like, when they come in handy, and how you can use them as a road map through your writing. Now get your thoughts in order - it’s as simple as do, re, mi!
