5.RI.5 Text Structure
We have been learning how to compare the structures of 2 or more nonfiction text structures. The text structures are:
-Compare/Contrast
-Problem/Solution
-Chronological order (Sequence of Events)
-Cause and Effect
-Description
-Argument and Support

To help at home, read some nonfiction text with your kids. Ask them if they see any keywords that help them identify the structure of the passage.

I will post some videos and other resources to help on this topic.
