I first created these as our state was moving to more nonfiction-focused reading standards, but I never realized how many text features would need to be highlighted throughout the year! It seems like each year, there are more and more questions asked about text features, and I was finding my original packet was not enough to keep pace.
Therefore, I am excited to say that I have compiled a Part 2 to this resource, full of twelve new text features and still providing all of the great activities from the first packet.
The text features highlighted in the new packet are:
- pronunciation guide
- guide words
- website/ hyperlink
- title page
- graphic organizer
I personally think these packets work best when used together, and with 24, you are still not having to deal with an insane amount. I would highly recommend mixing-and-matching throughout your introduction of these features, since some are more important and frequent than others. In Part 2, I have also included pages with #13-24, so if you ever wanted to use all 24 features for a scavenger hunt or quiz, you can!
These are still wonderful to use with any Scholastic News or Time for Kids weekly magazine, and printing on sticky notes is still such a hands-on and exciting way to look for these features:
All of these Nonfiction Text Feature packets are available in my TpT Store now.
