This pack contains fun and challenging activities to enhance your study of text features. I have created 18 colorful posters that include the definition and examples of each text feature.
In addition, there are now 8 activities that are sure to have your kids thinking! I have just added an anchor chart, too!
**Text Features Bookmarks and Bookmark Pointers. The pointers are arrows labeled with various features. Students use them to "point out" features found. Quick assessment for you!
**Text Features Bingo includes a game board, 27 game cards with the names of the features, and five variations of the bingo game.
**Text Features Treasure Hunt has a pirate theme. Students are asked to search for text features in non fiction books, color a coin when they find one, and include the page number it was found on.
**Text Features Detective is a prereading activity. Students search for clues in their own “just right” non-fiction text or text book. Using those clues, predict what they are going to read about and learn.
**I Have/Who Has is a fast paced game where students have to use their listening skills and recall definitions of the various text features. There are enough cards for 20 students to play.
**Non-Fiction Text Features Graphic Organizer is for students to use with their own “just right” books or with a text book.
**As a culminating activity, I have provided a piece about Abraham Lincoln. Students are asked to read it and choose the text features that would enhance the readers understanding. They should display their work on a large sheet of construction paper. GREAT for a collaborative group activity!
