We are on our second week of text features and I really think the kids are getting it! With my hand gestures to remember each one added with Whole Brain Teaching techniques, I think they are going to be masters at text features.
I used Beth Newingham's posters and created a Text Features workbook for the kids!
I really wish I could share it. I tried to email Beth to ask her permission and didn't get a response:(
But I did purchase some nonfiction text feature posters from Common Core and So Much More and I REALLY like these! I have them printed, laminated and up in my room!
I wish I would have bought this BEFORE I made my own using Beth's posters. This unit has a book the kids make. Oh well, next year:) The posters in itself are awesome!
Every day we are going over 2-4 text features. Students help me make the definition! I have been taking their definitions and placing them into an assessment.
This is what I got so far
Their definitions are pretty good...huh? I think this is a great teaching tool to use with other lessons as well.
Is this something you all would like? Maybe the template? Let me know and I can make it happen!
I am off to eat some dinner and grade some papers...blah!
Have a great night!
