  • An equivalent for fiction texts would be super. These could then be displayed simultaneously, allowing children to correctly identify the text type of the guided reading book that they are reading.

    Fiction text types: Prose, Poetry, Drama.

  • Very useful.

This helpful pack features a set of colourful posters, each one about a different non-fiction text type. Each text type comes with a definition, examples, notes in its structure and language features you're likely to find in them. Great for helping your children to familiarise themselves with different texts, and be able to identify them when they find them.
