PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These 9 resources have made teaching ✨ text organization ✨ my favorite unit! Perfect for teaching chronological order (sequence), cause and effect, posing and answering a question (question and answer), main idea and details, and comparison and contrast (similarities and differences). This bundle includes a text structure passage with all 5 organization types, task card sets, bookmarks, graphic organizers, and a word wall!

I Have Who Has Game 15 cards with answer key (ideal for small group work). NEW FEATURE: The card number is written in large font on the back of each card, so when students hold them, the teacher can easily determine which student has the next card. (This is especially helpful when a student doesn't realize they are holding the match. Using the large numbers, the teacher can discretely assist that student.)

Reference Bookmark for students to refer to as they determine the text structure of each passage they read. The front includes graphic organizers for visual learners and clue words for each structure type. The back includes example passages with the important signal words in bold.

Task Cards with Labeled Photos {Weather Themed} Teachers place the cards around the room or at a center. Students match the photos to the clues and record their answers on their answer sheet. The labeled photos may also be used for word walls, along with differentiation and support.

Task Cards with self-checking QR codes {Weather Themed} Teachers place the cards around the room or at a center. Students record their answers on their answer sheet, and self-check by scanning the QR codes with an iPad or smartphone. A labeled photo of the answer appears! (Students LOVE that part!)

Study Guide with QR Codes This foldable contains the 5 text structures with definitions and also 5 example passages highlighting the different types of organization. It doubles as a helpful reference page for student interactive notebooks. Using an iPad or Smartphone, the QR codes link each vocabulary word to a labeled image of the described term. Perfect for visual learners, ELLs, and students with special needs. Provides students with colorful images that help them retain information, but requires no color ink!

5 Graphic Organizers with clue words that assist students in determining the correct type of structure. Laminate and use as work mats with dry erase markers, have students sort texts they read by text structure and place on the correct mat, or post on the wall for reference.

Nonfiction Text Structure Passage {with & without self-checking QR codes} 5 paragraphs showcasing different text structures in the realistic context of an article about pandas. Students underline clues throughout the passages and determine the organization of each of the 5 sections. The labeled answer key also works great as a reference poster. Using the QR code version, students scan the codes to check their answers!

Word Wall with QR Codes 10 word wall cards that use QR codes to link students to images and graphic organizers of the type of text organization. Also includes example passages, key words, and kid-friendly definitions.

5 Mini Bookmarks for labeling texts with the correct text structure. Students use them to identify the text structure in their book (or a stack of books that I dump onto their group’s table during whole class activities).

***Please NOTE:***The QR code resources link to photos in Dropbox. If you plan to use these activities, please download my FREE Test Activity to ensure that the QR codes open on your school device (and on school wifi) before purchasing this product. If one of the freebie's QR codes works, they will all work. I value your time!***
