This resource includes:
→ 2 reading passages and graphic organizers for each text structure
→ A text structure quiz
→ Answer keys
Text Structure Sort
This text structure sorting resource is designed to teach 3rd, 4th, 5th, & 6th grade students about informational text structures (Cause and Effect, Compare and Contrast, Problem and Solution, Description, & Sequence) . This resource provides several opportunities for students to practice identifying the structure of a piece of writing through worksheets & a hands on foldable / sorting activity.
This resource includes:
→ “What is Text Structure”, “Why is it Important?”, & “What are Text Features”
→ Text Structure Sorting Activity
→ Practice Worksheets
→ Answer Keys
How I put it all together:
→ First, I directly introduce the concept using the anchor charts.
→ Then, I explain what text structure is and why it's important using the included printables.
→ Then, we fill in page 7 of the sorting resource together while referencing the completed chart.
→ Over the next few days, we work through each reading passage together as a class.
→ I then have them practice this skill with the text sort (either in pairs or individually). To do this, I have them fold a 12x18 piece of construction paper into 6 columns (1 column for each text structure, & 1 column for the activity title ~ page 9)
*Several extra cards were intentionally left blank. An extension of this sort would be to have students use these to create their own examples.
→ After they've completed the sort, I give them the quiz. :)
