Your students will enjoy these 8 posters and 32 task cards designed to reinforce their understanding of informational text structure in their reading and writing. Each card features a short informational paragraph and a choice of five text structures. In addition, there are posters for each of the five structures, plus a poster for the features for each text structure type and another poster for the key words of each text structure. These cards and posters work well for all students whether they are English speakers or English Language Learner (ELL) students.
This resource is designed 3rd, but can easily be used by gifted 2nd graders or 4th grade students that need a little support. I have another resource for Nonfiction Text Structure, but it is written at a 4th and 5th grade level. (Same posters, but the task cards are written at a higher level. You can find that resource here.
