This Resource Includes:
✔ 6 Student Notes Pages (TEACH) - For introducing each text structure, use these half-sheet student notes pages. Perfect for gluing in reading notebooks. Includes a completed version and a version where students can fill-in the notes. (Separate examples are included for Chronological Order & Sequence)
✔ 11 Student Practice Activities (PRACTICE) - For each Text Structure, you will get TWO passages and TWO activities for students to complete. Each activity asks students to fill in a graphic organizer, identify clue words, and explain why the author wrote the passage. (3 passages are included for Chronological/Sequence)
✔ 6 Paired Passage Activities (PRACTICE)- These passages are perfect for comparing text structures on the SAME TOPIC. Each page includes a passage about "bullying" and asks students to identify the text structure and compare it with a different "bullying" passage. (One passage per text structure; Separate examples are included for Chronological Order & Sequence)
✔A Mixed Review Activity/Game (PRACTICE) - This activity includes 15 passage cards and an organizer chart for students to fill in as they read the passages. Students are asked to identify the text structure of each passage and provide evidence for their decision. I like to have students complete this activity as an "end of unit" review before the test. They can complete this with a partner, in small groups, independently, or as a whole class game!
✔Anchor Chart - Describes each text structure and gives clue words to look for. You can recreate the anchor chart on large chart paper if needed. I also include a blank chart for students to fill out in their notebook.
✔A Unit Assessment (ASSESS) (with answer key) - The test covers all five text structures and some basic comprehension skills. There are 37 questions and 6 passages.
✔Answer Keys included for ALL Activities!!!
✔Teaching Tips - on how to use each part of this resource!
✔PROFESSIONALLY Written Passages - ALL passages were written by professional authors and are on high-interest topics.
