Genre: Informational Article
Informational articles are nonfiction. They provide information and facts about people, places, and things.

Sequence is one kind of text structure that authors use to organize the information in a text. Sequence is presenting information in time order. Words that signal time: first, next, last, finally

Proverbs and adages are short sayings or expressions that have been used for a long time and express a general truth. Example: "all good things must come to an end" or "practice makes perfect"
