How to Use These Nonfiction Graphic Organizers

We always like to introduce a new graphic organizer by modeling.

Have students help you complete an organizer during a reading mini-lesson is a good way to help students understand the expectations.

After completing an organizer as a class, be sure to display the sample so students can use it as a resource when needed.

An option for independent reading time is to create a spot for organizers students have been taught to use.

Once during the week, students can choose an organizer that fits their current independent reading. Their task during reading will be to complete the organizer.

This option gives students choice during independent reading. It also encourages some independence and self-direction.
