This Problem and Solution Package is a bundle of two resources for teaching the text structure - the set of Problem and Solution Task Cards, and the Problem and Solution Slide Presentation.
The PowerPoint presentation explains the concept and includes examples and student practice slides. There is also a fill-in notebook page for students to complete as they view the slides.
The set of task cards includes thirty large cards with a variety of activities designed for middle school and upper elementary students.
The slide presentation is great for introduction or review and whole-class practice. The task cards work in a variety of situations including small group or individual practice, classroom games, centers, and stations.
Both resources address the concept of identifying the text structure, using text evidence to identify the problem and solution(s), using various graphic organizers to illustrate the text structure, and identifying key terms. With a variety of activities, they work well with kids at various skill levels.
These resources support the Common Core standards for reading informational text, identifying text structures, using text-based evidence, and reading proficiently with understanding.
For packages of activities to practice other text structures and other reading or writing skills, see the BUNDLES category of this store.
