You might try a google site search with ohelizabeth sequencing and see what pops up. I know I've posted links in some threads in the past. Sorry to be so lazy tonight, sigh. I just found some new goodies too. As you say, it's easy to find materials at the most obvious level. Then you have to go ok how do I take this to the NEXT level and the next and the next.
For my ds, nothing seems to just come. So I've assumed everything we need to do for composition will need to be done this way. I literally assume that every single type of thing we want to compose I'm going to need to turn into a sequencing project, chop up, pair write, do together, until it's obvious to him. That's what I'm assuming. So that's a long gap from sequence 4 pictures to write a 5 paragraph essay, when you're assuming it's ALL going to need that level of support. That's my assumption. Because his brain is that glitchy.
I've got a number of workbooks. I usually search through amazon and my publisher haunts (Carson Delossa, Evan Moor, Teacher Created, Scholastic, etc.) trying to find things. TPT has stuff, but the quality varies. I really like the continuity of hitting a publisher and working through their books. Lakeshore Learning has some $$ kits that I finally broke down and bought. Haven't tried them yet. We've got a simpler book we're working through now. We finished a couple others, and this one was the next in the progression of difficulty. Before we were sequencing pictures. Now we're sequencing strips for a paragraph to go with a picture.
The Lakeshore Learning kits give you keyword ideas to go with each picture, so you're working on going from pictures with keywords to sentences to paragraphs. So you see what I'm saying, that all these layers of composition and expression can be supported. I've been thinking we should do this with thank you notes and things.
Fwiw, my ds is also diagnosed SLD writing.
Well foo, I tried that google search and what I was thinking of didn't pop up. Well I'm still too tired. I got a bug, ended up on an antibiotic, and I'm not my most spectacular self right now. Amazon.com: Short Story Sequencing (9781557990297): Evan Moor: Books This is the simpler stuff. If you know he can blast through all these things, then there are books that are a step up.
It looks like I got Carson-Delossa's sequencing cut up paragraphs. And the workbook we're doing right now is, like I said, a single picture with the sentences.
There's a workbook I used with dd on the types of paragraphs. I figured we'd take something like that and chop them up to sequence. So it's really the sky as the limit. It's just backing up till he can actually DO it. I always try to use materials both ways, sort of receptively and expressively. Once he's doing the task with their model, then do an original one. Or we'll use pictures, and we'll each make our stories. It really pushes him out of his box.
Does he use wh-questions in his everyday speech to make conversation? That's really the litmus test. When we really, really get things clicking, they should up in his speech. And of course wh-questions are the thing that drives reciprocal conversation, so that's why we put so much effort into it. When we really, really, really got to nailing these, ds' ability to have a conversation took off.
Gotta scat. If you find neat things, definitely share.
