Since we had just finished up talking about text structures, I thought it would be a perfect time to introduce them to text features.
|This is a chart from a few years ago. But I folded it up and revealed them one by one to talk about it. I don't save many charts-but this one took a TON of time to do. Plus, my kids really surprised me with their knowledge of the text features!|
I had them label all the text features that they noticed.
Nicole Shelby's stuff).
I made some modifications to have my students get a little more information out of it, and have their notebooks as a better resource.
While the kids were at special, I created an example to show them what I wanted them to do.
|I had italicized, glossary, sidebar, heading, picture and caption|
They were to create their own informational paragraph, and showcase at least 5 different text features. I told them they could do 5-6 different ones and showed them the examples on mine.
I had pulled some quick read science books (easy reads for most of my kids).
|I starred the ones for this friend that needed to be done first|
These turned out pretty well! I love how each example is a reflection of the student. :)
