I use these text codes for my weekly reading homework. Students work with one reading passage all week coding text, highlighting vocabulary, illustrating the passage, etc. Included in this freebie are the text codes for literature and informational text as well as directions for my reading response homework.
Can also be used in guided reading groups and whole group lessons. Enlarge the codes into a poster to reference during class. Staple a set in notebooks or in consumable science and social studies books.
I know you will find these useful and educational!
