This product includes detailed instructions (with photos) for your students to follow. It also includes a teacher instruction page. The finished product makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display! It can even be used as a valuable addition to your students' interactive notebooks!

Each slide contains one reading passage written on a chalkboard and five graphic organizers that represent each text structure. Students read the passage and move the appropriate graphic organizer to the open area at the bottom of the chalkboard.
