I am so glad that Common Core has emphasized the importance of text features.They literally unlock the information for readers. I keep wondering why we hadn't explicitly taught these prior to the CCSS. From your post it looks like you have done an excellent job of putting together a quality product. I will be checking it out at your store on Teacherspayteachers immediately. Thanks for such a detailed post.
Thanks Cathe! It's true, with the CCSS informational reading has become more important than ever. Understanding how to use text features is a key skill for students today. We are living in a time where information is available everywhere in many forms and kids have to know how to use the text features effectively. Thanks for joining the conversation here : )
