WOW! I am so impressed with this teacher's introduction to text structures lesson and unit. This is the link to the activities and lessons done BEFORE having the students create a non-fiction magazine on a topic of their choice, which was the cumulative project.
The perfect resource to help introduce students to the genre of Non-Fiction. It is a Reference Guide for students to refer to when learning about, exploring, and responding to non-fiction texts. It is perfect for students in upper elementary!! This flip book is divided into 4 parts: Non-Fiction Genres, Text Features, Text Structures, and Reading Response.
I was looking for a way to incorporate text features and review Social Studies standards. I hope your class enjoys these pages as much as mine does! This is an excellent way to incorporate ELA into your SS curriculum. Thurgood Marshall- There are TWO text feature page included here.
