Teaching Text Types is an important part of our job.
We need to teach how they look and the components they have.
The most important task we can do is to read lots of different genres and then compare them and look at how we can write them.
Once we have taught the structure - we need to allow our kids to choose the genre that best fits the audience and the topic they have chosen.
I like to provide clear structures for my kids to refer to. These files do just that!
These photos show the photo uploaded to iPads and the kids choose which one to use for the task at hand.
I have two packs you can use to help kids get the planning right.
The first one has bright sticky note themed posters and pngs.
The second one has posters, planners and assessment pages.
