Sometimes adding images can bring a whole new dimension to learning a new concept. Using photos and reading passages, this packet contains two different reading level passage sets and a sorting mat. Whether you want to use tactile task cards or a worksheet, you have both options in this set. These will help students practice nonfiction text features: description, problem and solution, cause and effect, compare and contrast, and sequence.
Struggling students and language learners will be able to work in pairs or small groups to read and sort the short passages. Also included here are answer sheets of different levels with answer keys as well as an extension activity. For whole group, this could be a scaffolded lesson, or after mastery, use it as a review center. Students will enjoy the quirky images and learning how to identify text structures!
