"I Can" Statement: I can use text features to comprehend technical texts
What will we learn? In the 4th grade, nonfiction texts are a large part of our learning base. Nonfiction texts can be challenging to navigate, so we are spending time learning how to comprehend and analyze nonfiction texts while using text features. Text features act as a road map, of sorts, to help guide us to a better understanding of nonfiction texts.
Charts and graphs are also a large part of nonfiction texts. We will be using our skills learned to analyze and answer questions about tables, charts, and graphs.
