Text Structure Activity (also called Organizational Patterns) :
This kinesthetic activity has students cutting, matching, gluing, and filing in organizers. There are 9 paragraphs and a matching graphic organizer for each paragraph in which students are to fill in using the information from the text. The organizers were made specifically for each paragraph, so the information fits perfectly. Plenty of transition words and key phrases are included in each paragraph to help students recognize commonly used words for each text structure.
Text Structures Included:
-Cause and Effect (2 examples)
-Compare and Contrast (2 examples)
The answer key labels the text structure of each paragraph, and it also has all 9 organizers filled in.
