    Hi...
    I teach second as well...
    for sequenceing...one thing I do is I model a picture story...
    I draw a simple picture on the board...
    A kid at his house...
    okay then he walks to the beach...
    then he goes swimming..
    then he eats lunch...
    Im sure you see what I mean..
    But I DO not use words right away...
    then I have students use construction paper to draw a sequence of events...
    After they draw it they show me..explain and then write about it...
    I go over sequence words...first, next, after, then...those kind...
    I also use reading books to show sequence and discuss what happened first...second third...
    It is a hard concept but I have really seen growth with my kids by doing this..
    I incorporate prediction into it and suspence when we get more advanced...
    Good luck..hope this helps...
