Product Description

The goal of this resource is to help students identify, understand, and use different text features. As students progress through this resource, the text and questions increase in complexity. Students will also get repeated exposure to the common text features they see in textbooks and other informational texts.

The Importance of Understanding and Using Text Features:

Text features are all the components of a text that are not part of the main body text. There are many unique features that serve different purposes:

1.) Print features (bold print, font types/sizes, italics, and underlining) help students pay attention to important words.

2.) Graphic aids (illustrations/pictures, photographs, maps, charts/tables, and graphs) help students visualize and help readers make meaning of the text.

3.) Informational aids (materials list, labels/captions, numbered steps, timelines, and boxed text) help the reader understand new or important information.

4.) Organizational aids (titles, headings/subheadings, numbered steps, glossary, and table of contents) help readers find information or connect the ideas presented in a text.

Understanding each of these common text features will help students comprehend difficult (and often dense) informational texts.

This resource includes everything you will need to practice text features with your students! I’ve included THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EACH PASSAGE for you to easily differentiate in your classroom! There are also multiple choice questions and short-answer questions for your students to practice text features.

Included in this Resource:

Leveled Passages

This resource contains ten differentiated informational text passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate with your students. The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels, which can be found in the top left corner of each passage.
