This is an AMAZING product!! I teach first grade and I used it the entire third quarter to teach the non fiction text features. It is very thorough. At first I thought it might be too difficult for 6 and 7 year old, but it was terrific. We highlighted key words in the definitions and used them to quiz a partner each week. My students LOVE this!! Thank you for your hard work!!!

Jen,

I teach 5th grade. I want to do an informational/ opinion writing unit using the Making Copycat Mentor Texts.Is this a good resource to use before doing that unit? If not is there another you recommend. My students have been taught using a basal for years.

Thanks,
Paulina

On  November 23, 2013Hello Literacy answered:
Yes, this notebook helps students see the nonfiction text features that authors use to make informational text ideas and concepts easier to understand. Doing the notebook will help them as they transition to becoming nonfiction writers...they will want to incorporate the same features in their own writing.

On  June 23, 2013,  Shawna C. asked:
Hi Jen,
First of all, I just LOVE your creations! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and creativity! Second, I have a question for you: I'm thinking of purchasing your CC Informational Text Features Notebook, but I have already purchased the CC Reading Bundle. Will I be duplicating my purchase?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 23, 2013Hello Literacy answered:
Hi! Thanks for your question & support, first of all! Second, there 25 features in the CC Text Features Notebook and examples for you to print and copy for each student or students can find their own examples or draw examples when they see them in their books. The CC Text Features Notebook is ideal for grades 2 or 3. If you teach K or 1, the pages in the CC Reading bundle is good enough, I think.
Thanks,
Jen❤

Something like this would definitely be appropriate for upper grades, I can work on a variation of it with longer and stronger definitions. What do you think?
