Interactive Notebook: No need for a composition book! This interactive text features notebook is designed to be made into a booklet that conveniently fits into your students' reading folders. Its purpose is to help your students understand the different types of text features, their purposes, and how they help the reader. It is organized into four parts:

  • Print Features
  • Organizational Aids
  • Graphic Aids and Illustrations

This resource can be used all year long as you teach and reteach text features. To compliment this free resource, you might want to check out my Nonfiction Text Features Flipbooks!

Students can use this notebook year-round as they find, cut and paste examples from copies of articles and magazines they read during the year. Next to each sample they collect, they can write a sentence about how that particular example helped them understand the text from which it came or how it helped them locate specific information.
