Why just make a text feature reference book when you can apply text features in writing???! There are templates and a design your own text. Kids love cutting out the text features to "build their own" book!
Students will truly understand how authors organize information in non-fiction texts after they have become authors who use text features themselves.
-Whole group about a topic researched where everyone makes the same book. This would be good for younger grades or as an introductory lesson on using text features in writing.
-With partners or individually.
-Older students or gifted students can cut and paste their text features to create their own book so it is a more authentic experience. Also, what a great assessment!
Enjoy writing non-fiction texts with your class!
