Comprehending nonfiction requires additional skills and strategies.
In order for our students to become proficient readers, they need to understand the different text features commonly found in informational text.
This unit will provide you the avenue to introduce 14 different nonfiction text features.
By printing and copying pages 3-19, you can create a booklet that the students will complete with examples of each feature. You can use the cover provided for the student book also.
I like to use real books to show examples of the feature during my mini-lesson. After the mini-lesson, I have the students complete the matching page in their copy of My Nonfiction Elements Book. The pages are numbered for easier reference.
There are three ways the students can complete this activity:
1) They can look for the features in magazines, cut them out and paste them on the pages.
2) The students can find the features on pages final included in this unit. They cut and glue them on the correct pages.
3) The students can draw their own examples of these features.
As the original purchaser, you may reproduce unlimited quantities for you OWN classroom use. Duplication for other teachers, a grade level, schools, or for commercial purposes is strictly forbidden. If you wish to purchase a set for another person or your grade level, please add the multiple user option at checkout.
I hope you and your students have fun learning and searching for nonfiction elements while exploring this type of genre.
