Identifying Text Features in Nonfiction
Many sources of information, such as newspapers and magazine articles, use text features to highlight important information about the topic being presented. Becoming familiar with these features helps students learn how to identify important parts of a text. Text features present important information that helps us fully comprehend the text.
This week our students will be focusing on identifying text features in nonfiction literature. Students will learn how to read and use information from pictures, captions, diagrams, tables and charts. They will also use this information to summarize the text they are reading.
Also this week, Thursday, students will bring home their
4 1/2 weeks Progress Report for 2nd Quarter.
We will be on Thanksgiving Holiday Break next week.
