Clip to ScrapBook #5

When I introduce timelines, I explain that it's almost like a picture of time. First I read the circle story, [I]The Oxcart Man[I] to them. We discuss the sequence of the story. Then we create the story's timeline together.

Next we make a timeline of our daily class schedule together. For homework I have them write and illustrate their own timeline from 4:00 p.m. to bedtime. They take home a large sheet of paper folded in an 8-box page and put a time in each box. They tell what they were doing at that time and illustrate it.

When they bring it back, I have them cut it in half and tape the ends together. Then they have a long timeline of their day.
