Non-fiction text features are always fun to teach. Students love non-fiction text and it is always great to find fun ways to help them understand how important text features really are when reading.
Captions are my favorite text feature! I always tell my students that when I read non-fiction I look at the photographs and read the captions first. Captions always tell us interesting information about the photograph and text.
This pack is very simple. Just 65 interesting photographs with room to write a caption!
Included in the pack:
-Caption Anchor charts
-65 photographs with empty caption
-Caption recording sheet
There are many different ways you can use this.
Some ideas are:
-“Caption This” contest! Have one photo up a day or week or even month, and the student with the best caption wins something.
-Use these as if they are captions for a newspaper or something like Instagram.
-Great for morning work or to do as a “May do.”
-Write the room or gallery walk. Students walk around the room and find photographs. Then they write the caption down on the recording sheet provided.
This pack is for practice with text features and captions. It is meant to be used after you introduce and teach all about text features.
Thanks for checking out my little shop! Happy teaching, friends!
