You asked, and I heard you! My text features products are now available at a discounted bundle price.
I originally created this product for my own classroom. I needed a way to assess my students’ understanding of text features other than by observation, and I wanted the assessment to tie in curriculum and relevant content. Thus, this product was born. The kids have fun using different colors to identify the different text features, and it provides great work samples for me.
This product is geared toward third through fifth graders, although it is much more rigorous when used in the lower grades. I use these exact passages with my second graders. They are perfect for shared reading as a class or for buddy reading.
Visit individual product descriptions to see detailed lists of topics included.
The first page in each document is called “Comprehension Check" or "Reading Response.” These comprehension questions can be used with ANY of the passages included in this product, or really any nonfiction text! Just choose the passage you are going to use, then copy the Reading Response onto the back of the chosen passage. You will then have a two-sided nonfiction assessment that will assess text feature identification as well as reading comprehension.
