Nonfiction Text Features – 1st Grade RI.1.5
⭐️These 6 model websites and 6 mini-books with question sets are aligned to RI.1.5. Lexile® leveled close reading comprehension passages are perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing 1st grade text features in nonfiction skills. Printable PDF & Digital Google Slides versions make this resource perfect for classroom and distance learning. First grade students learn various text features (e.g., headings, tables of contents, glossaries, electronic menus, icons) to locate key facts or information in a text.
⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this packet is still perfect for teaching 1st grade text feature skills. Aligns with state-specific standards like TEKS and VA SOL.
⭐️Includes standard based questions, anchor charts, and two skills focused test passages. Certified Lexile measured close reading comprehension texts are varied within the first grade band.
⭐️This printable and digital resource is compatible with Google Drive and Google Slides.
*This digital version saves paper and is perfect for distance learning, but still requires teachers to correct student responses.
