So this week I'm teaching my third graders about nonfiction text features. Beth Newinghams blog has been very helpful (http://blogs.scholastic.com/top_teaching/2011/03/my-march-top-ten-list-nonfiction-reading-resources.html) she has a set of nonfiction text feature posters that are awesome and free!
I'm also using a flip chart from Scholastic to introduce each feature.
At the end of the week my students will begin a Nonfiction Text Feature project that I can't wait to share with you guys.
How do you go about teaching nonfiction to your students?
