We are working hard on learning how authors organize their texts! These organizational structures are: description, sequence, problem/solution, cause and effect and compare and contrast.
This is a new skill for third graders and this can be incredibly difficult to grasp! We are working for two whole weeks on this skill! I am instructing students, using whole group, small group, guided practice and independent practice to reinforce these skills. Please let me know if you have any questions! Please watch this video for a brief introduction to these skills!
