Ms. Tinsley's ELA Class

5th Grade

What is happening in our ELA class?

Welcome! Here you can find information about what the students are learning about in class.


For the next few weeks, the students will be learning about the five types of informational text structures.



  • Description
  • Compare and Contrast
  • Cause and Effect
  • Sequential Order
  • Problem and Solution



Students will learn how to differentiate between the types when reading a text. They will be able to compare and contrast the structure of events, ideas, concepts and information in two or more texts (RI.5.5). The students will also learn how to combine information from several texts on the same topic to write about that topic in the different structures.
