My class struggles with informational text. Many of them need additional practice with identifying nonfiction text features and would rather do anything else than that. I put together a fun worksheet that I plan on using during my next guided reading lessons. The students will be given a type of informational text; for example the latest National Geographic, and together we will identify and graph 8 different nonfiction text features. After we have completed one together, the students can go back and try it on their own. At our next meeting, we can go over and compare our graphs. As the students become more proficient, hopefully their confidence will increase and carry over. For an extension, we can take the information in our graphs and create pie graphs, line graphs, or line plots. Might as well kill 2 birds with 1 stone!
