Expository Text Features Booklet

On some pages they glue in an example that I provide. On other pages they search their independent reading books for examples of that feature and draw or write them into the booklets.

Text Feature Booklet Page Text Feature Booklet Page

To make text features booklets download the file below:

Photocopy one for each student and bind.  As each text feature is studied, have students glue or draw an example in the box. The following lists the information on each page of the booklet:

and "Using Text Features" recording sheets.

Text Structure Posters: Knowing the elements of text structure is an effective tool in understanding nonfiction. Each structure can be identified using “signal” words. Words such as “then,” “next,” and “afterward” are indicators of a sequencing pattern. When students learn the key words and can recognize the predictable patterns, they will be better equipped to scan the text and pinpoint the information they seek. Below are posters that I created to teach my students about the most common structures found in nonfiction texts. Download a PDF slide show of the text structure posters.
