Follow up whole group introduction lesson with small groups working on nonfiction text features notebookshave them locate different types of text features in magazines, newspapers, and nonfiction books (including text books).

Students can cut out or make copies of examples (if you use legal size paper you can get 4 pages of text on 1 page for the cost of 1 copy) and explain what they are and how they help the reader.

Differentiate: Provide examples

using text on levels appropriate

for the different groups of 

students. Plus, the teacher can 

pull small groups for nonfiction guided practice using different

levels of text ( EOG released
