Descriptions, Prompting Questions, Signal Words

There are colored and non-colored printables included. Print these out, give to students to glue into reading journals, or laminate to use during guided reading as well as whole group instruction! I put velcro on the back of the Text Features and the Text Structures, so I can post them up in the classroom as a reference. Mine are on a foam board for ease in movement.

*Text Feature elements for teacher to use to guide teaching, and for students to use when reading non-fiction text.

*Text Structure Signal Words for students to use as a guide.

*Definition of Text Structure Elements for either teacher or students.

*Prompting questions about Text Structure, for teacher to use during guided reading.
