Text Features Chart - tells the name, purpose, and gives an example of 18 different text features!

Using the Text Features Chart

This free text features chart is a great reference for students because it:
1. Tells the name of the text feature
2. Tells the purpose of the text feature
3. Gives an example of the text feature

You can use this text features chart in a variety of ways – post it up in the room so students can use it as a reference, or have the students glue it in their interactive notebooks. You could also use this chart to have your students go on a “text feature hunt.” Give students a nonfiction book, and see how many text features they can find!

You can find this free tree text features on the text features page in my “Members Area.” Here, members have access to ALL of the resources I create and all of the resources I will create in the future.

I’ve made many of these resources, including this text feature chart, FREE to any teacher who wants them. Just look for “FREE!” next to resource named “Text Features Chart.”

  1. Hi there,

    I am having difficulty downloading the text feature chart. I click on the link at the bottom of the page and my whole screen turns a translucent grey and then nothing downloads. I’m really hoping to use this as an intro to my mini-unit this year.

      I am sorry about the difficulty. My email provider (that is connected to that link) has been having some issues these past couple of days. I will email the text feature chart to you!

  2. I think the Text Features Chart will be very useful in my classroom. Thank you for making it. However, I couldn’t get the Text Feature Chart to download either. I did press the “Click Here to Download this Free Text Features chart” link, and it asked me to input my name and email, but it didn’t send the chart to me…

      I’m sorry you are having trouble accessing these. This file is a pdf, so I would check to make sure you the most updated version of Adobe Reader. Hopefully that helps!

  4. Hi!

    I love your stuff. I am teaching non-fiction this year and was wondering if you have any type of unit or scope and sequence for this?

      Thank you so much! I love teaching text features because it can be so much fun – I’m planning on doing 5 more blog posts on different text feature activities, so hopefully you’ll find some more helpful ideas.

      I do have a non-fiction text feature unit that I sell at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It includes posters, task cards, worksheets, and writing integration. It does not include a scope and sequence, however.

      Good luck this school year!
