This resource is meant to be a weekly review of the Common Core reading informational standards of identifying text structures (4th Grade) and comparing text structures (5th Grade). This can be used for homework, morning work, or classwork and would be perfect to use during an Informational Unit or after the unit for reinforcement.

This resource contains 16 total informational paragraphs written on a 4th/5th grade reading level. The paragraphs are grouped into groups of 4 paragraphs per page. One page of 4 paragraphs is meant to be used for an entire week with a different assignment each day with the same page. The students will have to revisit the paragraphs each day to complete the daily assignment. This will support a deeper understanding of the text and provide the student with practice with close reading of a text.
I have included four options for the daily assignments (on pages 5-8) for you to choose from to use based on your students' needs. The assignments on pages 5 and 6 align more with the 5th grade common core and the assignments on pages 7 and 8 align with 4th grade. However you can mix and match to provide additional support or challenge your students. I have also included a blank directions page if you want to write in your own directions for the daily assignments (page 9).
Print the directions you want to use and the page for that week. Give the students the handout (page 10) to record their homework on or a blank piece of notebook paper. A journal or notebook could also be used.
An answer key with the text structures is provided.
