Over the first half of the year in 2nd grade, we have spent a lot of time working with informational text. While some of the text features have been easy for the kids to identify and use, some have been more difficult. So one morning we worked together to make a Text Features Anchor chart using clippings from National Geographic for Kids, Time for Kids, and the regular Time Magazine. What I love about this is the kids have been referring to it while on their text features hunt at literacy stations. I love anchor charts for this very reason and it’s even better when the kids remember to refer to it on their own!
