With ELA standards putting a heavy emphasis on non-fiction, being able to use text features is essential to reading success.
This is a set of 14 posters plus two corresponding activities to help students identify, understand, and use text features. Each poster measures 8×10 and includes an illustrated example and definition. I created these as a visual support for my class. They hang in my room all year where students refer to them often.
- Reading Response Worksheet Gives students practice identifying and using text features found in a book
- Cut-and-Glue Worksheet Requires students to glue the correct definition next to the corresponding text feature
- Student Reference Sheet Quick, one-page guide that explains what each text feature is; also doubles as an answer key for the cut-and-glue worksheet
Text features included in this set:
- table of contents
- boldface type (also provided as “Bold Print”)
- bullet points
