Nonfiction Text Features Posters

There are so many different text features that our students need to know.  Common Core identifies a few specific features that second graders need to know, and my district has identified a few additional features they want our students to know.

I like to teach these features in context, meaning, as they come up in the text.  Some texts we read may not have all the features they are responsible for knowing.  I thought it would be nice to have a visual that I could refer to when discussing these features with our texts, so I made a set of posters!

I used my district's list of identified features plus those explicitly stated in RI.2.5 when creating this set. 

You can get your own set here, for FREE!!!  I hope you like them and can find a use for them.  If you download the set, please leave a comment!

Note: This poster set has been updated from what was originally posted in my store.  I updated this blog post on July 31, 2015 to include images of the newest version of this freebie available in my TPT store.
