Non-Fiction Blues

Happy turkey week, friends!

I am SO, SO excited that tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  The one day of the year when I feel that it is okay to eat and eat and eat.  I am lucky enough to have had today off from work (we go back on Monday) and was thinking about my kiddos.  In my reading center, I had them doing a non-fiction scavnger hunt. Needless to say, I realized we have A LOT of work to do on understanding non-fiction text features.  The week after next, I will be reading only non-fiction texts during Interactive Read Aloud and really focusing on that non-fiction standard.  From what I've heard about the Smarter Balanced tests that will be coming to my state very soon, there is a lot of non-fiction reading involved.  To help them remember the text features, I made some colorful posters.  I can't wait to hang them in my room for my kiddos to use.  We will be doing another non-fiction scavenger hunt and I am hoping that they really start to understand the non-fiction text features.  Click on the picture below to download the non-fiction text features posters that I created.  I hope you can use them with your kiddos!  I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving tomorrow!
