The paragraphs use the most common text structures such as narrative, descriptive, comparison, persuasive, problem/solution, chronological, etc. Research has shown that when students can identify common text structures, their reading comprehension improves dramatically!

I'm sorry about that. Other purchasers have bought the Tone Project and have not had trouble opening it. It's in PDF format which the website supports, so I'm not sure what the problem is. If you could send your email address to me at work sstacha@gwmail.dallasisd.org I will send you the Word file to your email. Thanks! Enjoy the project!!!!

I don't. I'm sorry. I let the students discuss among themselves what they think the sturcture of the paragraph is. I require them to prove why that is the structure. (clue words, graphic organizer, etc.) Hope this helps!

Hi Sharon,
Could you explain to me how to use the various cards (defiinitions, labels, numbers)?
November 24, 2010 Report inappropriate comment

Sharon Cortez  (TpT Seller)
Sure! I just copy them on cardstock front and back. They can match the words and definitions. Then, they can turn tem over and match the two numbers on the back to check ther own answers. I hope this helps. If I didn't answer your question fully, please let me know. I hve used these in my class with GREAT success!!!!
