Informational Text Features

At the back of each book, the author connects the study of animal parts to humans!  When we saw this illustration, we knew it would make a great lesson for the text features of labels and captions.

    I love these engaging readers series. Will you be adding animal eyes and tails to this unit at some point?

      Thank you! We love them too! No, we are only doing the 4 books. Since the students will already know the structure of this text, we did not think a 4th or 5th week of close readings would be warranted. However, reading those additional books would be a fantastic idea as a way to just add to the enjoyment.
