UPDATED: After teaching this unit with third graders, I saw a need for an additional lesson and resources to help students apply text structure to sentences. There are now three additional pages at the same price.

This packet is designed to let students discover the text structures characteristics and key words on their own. The packet allows for many independent practice opportunities as well as group work. I choose to introduce text structure using informational picture books/trade books for students 3-5 because it is a text kids of all grades are familiar with. It is the same idea of "touchstone texts." The kids, even 5th graders, will need visuals and books they do not struggle to read when they are learning a complicated still such as identifying text structure. The material in this packet lends itself to being used with articles and other forms of text as well.
