Practice nonfiction text structures with 32 task cards, a spinner game, and a worksheet. Structures included are cause and effect, compare and contrast, sequence, problem and solution, and description. Each task card features a short informational paragraph and asks students to choose its nonfiction text structure out of 3 choices. The task cards can be used for a whole class or a small group. The spinner game is perfect for interventions or centers. The follow-up worksheet can be used as an assessment or as test prep. Great value!
There are many paragraphs about the same subject, such as drought, snakes, tornadoes, or cowboys. They are written using various text structures so students are able to see how paragraphs with similar topics might be organized in different ways.

Kids BEG to play this game! One of the things they really love is that the spinner is designed in such a way that they might get lucky and get bingo chips for doing nothing. I have all students read and answer aloud so that everyone hears and gets review, even if it is someone else's turn.
BONUS...once you own this resource, you can reuse the spinners and student game cards over and over with task cards you already own...or even cut-up worksheets!
I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.
