I hope you didn't mean in series, but in parallel. Using short pigtails, you nut all your hots together, including the incoming hot, nut all your neutrals together including the incoming neutral, and nut all the grounds together, including the incoming ground.
BTW, as a time saver, buy the ground wire nuts with the little hole in the top. This allows you to run the incoming ground wire through the nut, while twisting the others around it. Makes for one less pigtail to worry about.
