    Bundle Description

    This huge collection of informational text structure exercises will help to reinforce essential text structure skills throughout the school year, with a new group of fascinating readings, sorting exercises, paragraph analysis, problem-solving activities, writing assignments, and assessments for each month of the school year (September-May). These no-prep practice packets will help your students master the 5 nonfictional text structures: Description, Sequence, Problem & Solution, Comparison & Contrast, and Cause & Effect. The exercises will not only strengthen their ability to recognize the different text structures, but also to use them more naturally in their own writing.

    • 9 “Crosswordball” Puzzles— Students solve clues about text structures (each with a different theme) and then arrange their ‘answer balls’ to decode an answer to a joke

    • 9 “Secret Message Text Structure Challenges”— Students unscramble a secret message, determine its text structure, and do an unusual-shaped word search

    • 9 Text Structure Assessment/Review Sheets— Students are given a series of paragraphs and asked to determine whether each one uses description, sequence, problem & solution, comparison & contrast, cause & effect—or no organizational pattern
