This is an expert book for students to learn about nonfiction writing as well as nonfiction text features. Each page is formatted for the student to write about something he/she knows a lot about and to include a text feature. Topics in my first grade classroom ranged from "planets" to "my baby brother". Students can write at their own level. These are the page titles and the text feature that goes with each page. I would teach one text feature and model using the book each day.
