ELA Text Feature Lesson - "Information Shark"

by First Grade Diva Creations
1st Grade & 2nd Grade

Information Shark

Do you want your students to be sharks at finding information? 

You need to add grade appropriate informational text, print, and teach.  These activities can be used as a unit or one piece at a time.  They can be used multiple times throughout the school year.  I use them for whole group instruction in the beginning of the year, but by January they make a great literacy center. 

Twelve mini-posters for text features are included.  These provide a great reference for children when hung in classroom.
 Text features included in poster are title page, heading, subheadings, pictures, illustrations, charts and graphs, captions, map, index, cutaway, diagrams and labels, bold print, table of contents, and glossary.

The pinch card in this resource is one of my favorite tools.  My students have a laminated copy in their book bins.  It serves as an easy reference for them when reading informational text.  It also makes for a great way to check for understanding during whole group instruction.

There are six  text feature printable activities that can be used all year long with all of your informational units.
