Hurray! I'd like to introduce my newest product, the student "Text Features Book". This item was created to familiarize my second grade students to the text features in nonfiction texts. I needed a hands on resource that my students could easily use to practice applying their understanding of text features. Not only can my students keep track of all the text features that they learn, they can also use this book at the end of the unit to review and study for the text features assessment. The text features that are addressed include: table of contents, heading, bold print, photographs, captions, glossaries, index, labels, diagrams and maps. My students are very proud of their books once they are completed. I hope your students enjoy this item as much as mine have!
This item can be used to help students meet the following Common Core State Standard:
ELA-Literacy.RI.2.5 Know and use various text features to locate key facts or information in a text efficiently.
