Sequential - a feature of structured literacy where skills are presented in a logical order from simple to more difficult. In the case of letters, the letters are presented in the order of frequency with those used most often to spell words coming first. For example, by first learning the letters 'a', 'm', 's', and 'd', which are used frequently in text, a new reader is able to begin to read and build words at the beginning of instruction.
