I've been teaching nonfiction text features every year, BUT never with electronic features! The CC introduced this into my teaching. I wanted text and electronic feature posters that matched the common core standards. I also wanted the formats and images to match each other. (Type-A much? Guilty...) Images are easy to understand-- great for readers and nonreaders.
Use these posters to anchor your mini lessons and display features throughout the year. Aligns with K.RI.5, 1.RI.5, and 2.RI.5. Use them to keep your non fiction text features aligned with the requirements of the K-2 common core. Posters for all CC K-2 non fiction features in the 3 following sizes: (approximately) 7.5x10” 5x6” 2x3” 2x2.5”
15 Features in all:
K-2 Electronic Features: (purple text) Electronic Menu, Icons
Kindergarten Text Features: (brown text) Front Cover, Back Cover, Text, Pictures, Title (added for user request, not in CC)
1st Grade Text Features: (blue text) Heading, Glossary, Table of Contents
2nd Grade Text Features: (orange text) Captions, Bold Print, Index, Diagrams, Labels
As I teach each nonfiction feature, I add the corresponding poster to the wall AND the students glue pictures of the feature into their notebook. By the end of the unit, students had a notebook of features that they could reference whenever they worked with nonfiction text or technology. Students left this notebook in their book bins for easy access.
Options and variations are included for:
- color and B&W cover pages
- use with electronic and/or text feature,
- students can sketch what they find in their own reading, and/or glue pictures that match the classroom posters.
- differentiated K-2 with 5 different student writing page options ranging from “This is the _____.” With room for a glued and/or drawn picture to “This is the___... This feature looks like ____... This feature helps me____...”
This item also includes the “All About Chickens” book. I created this book to show samples of each type of feature. The images from the book match the feature posters. You may want to print these pages, attach them like a book, and use them as part of your mini lessons. You could also print a copy for each student to find the feature(s) you’re teaching that day.
