Text Features--New Ideas
In order to ensure that all students understand and recognize text features, we reviewed the concept once again using some informational books about previous "Presidents". I collected six books from the library ranging from John Kennedy to Harry Truman. Students were given a small yellow text feature check off list to identify the text features within the book. Students worked in groups as they communicated together discussing the different text features. I stole this idea from a pinterest site. I only used one part of her idea. The creator is Allison Nicole. She doesn't have a website.
