Functional Text Anchor Charts and Analysis Worksheets
I love using functional text in the classroom because it gives students practice with authentic real world reading. It's easy to introduce the procedural text genre with this helpful, no-prep set of anchor charts and worksheets. These are so handy to use as your students explore a variety of authentic text examples!
anchor chart with examples of functional formats
word wall card (with and without visual)
matching worksheet (match functional formats to their purposes)
functional text analysis worksheets (2 differentiated versions)
You can print the anchor charts to display or copy at a reduced size for interactive notebooks.
Please note that functional text samples are not included.
