Persuasive Text Structure Posters

PDF | 15 pages|Grades: 1 - 4

Posters to help introduce the basic structure of persuasive writing.

Understanding the structure of persuasive writing can be difficult for young children to grasp. This simple and effective teaching resource includes 3 sets of posters:

  • 5 x posters detailing the contents of each paragraph in persuasive writing (introduction, three arguments and conclusion) as well as some sentence starters.
  • 2 x examples of persuasive writing clearly split into the main structure headings.
    • Dogs Make the Best Pets.
    • Homework is Unnecessary.

Laminate and display these posters as a visual reminder to your students about what is needed in persuasive writing.

    Hello Brooke,
    While we don’t have a narrative poster set in the same style as this resource, we do have a huge narrative writing collection here:
    https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource-collection/narrative-writing/
    I’m sure you will find something to help you out in this collection. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Works really well as an example and a reference on the wall. Kids look at them all the time!

    I have displayed these posters on my WAGOLL writing wall. My students constantly refer to them to support the structure of their persuasive texts. I’m wondering if you have similar posters for narrative and other text types? They’re excellent for continued reference by students.
