Lesson 1: Students are becoming exposed to the understanding of what text structures are by learning about key words, graphic organizers, and creating an interactive slider visual they can use throughout the week. Posters for each type of text structure are included!
Lesson 2: Students analyze sentences with key words to determine the text structure of the sentences. They sort and glue the sentences onto construction paper
Lesson 3: Students evaluate facts given outside of a text to determine what text structure those facts would be best suited to fit into. Students create a flip book to cut, glue, and sort the facts into the correct space on the flip book.
Lesson 4: Students will read short nonfiction passages and use the given graphic organizer to prove the text structure they believe the passage is. Students are also given sentence frames to practice writing out their explanations.
Lesson 5: Students get to apply their knowledge of nonfiction text structure by creating a flip book. Students read, identify, and justify their answers without any support.
All activity are more hands on than normal ‘worksheets’. Direction pages and real photographs are also included! A graphic organizer, bookmark, anchor chart, craftivity, & center are all also included!
