This text structures resource was created for use in my classroom to support my increased use of informational text in both reading and writing. I have been explicitly teaching my students about these informational text structures, about the signal words that can help them understand written texts.
This is perfect to help them convey their own messages when writing, and also for using graphic organizers to track their thinking when they read informational texts AND when they plan their own writing.
I have put all of it here in one place along with some suggestions for use!
Here’s what you get:
- Suggestions for use--lesson ideas and more.
- Posters for each text structure including the name, a brief description, and a collection of signal words. Each is available in color and black and white.
- An assortment of graphic organizers for each one to use for students to track their thinking while they read or to plan their own writing.
- A “text guide” for each structure. I use this when immersing my students in informational texts for them to make note of the different types of structures they find. They can also brainstorm a list of OTHER topics that would make sense to use with that structure.
- A few more goodies!
