Third graders have been learning about the many text features that we see in nonfiction texts. They have been using a variety of nonfiction texts to locate examples of these features. We have also discussed how these text features help us better understand what we are reading. We have been playing some games like Go Fish, Memory and BINGO to help us become more familiar with these text features and their definitions. As we read and discuss our Scholastic News magazines this year, we will continue to talk about the text features that each magazine contains and how these help us to better comprehend what we are reading. We will soon be learning about New York State.
