Description

Everything You Need to Teach Text Structures and Text Evidence - Including: Posters / Anchor Charts, Reading Passages with Graphic Organizers, a Foldable Sort, a Quiz, and Answer Keys! Aligned to Common Core Standards & TEKS. Now Includes Holiday Bonus Passages!

Posters

These nonfiction text structure posters include: Cause and Effect, Compare and Contrast, Problem and Solution, Description, & Sequence . Each poster includes a brief definition and a graphic organizer.

Text Structure Passages and Graphic Organizers

There are two practice reading passages for each text structure. Each includes 2 copies: One with a blank graphic organizer, and one with a completed graphic organizer. After working through each one together, I give the quiz to my class.

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. :)
