It seems like we have spent a great deal of time searching for the perfect graphic organizer. There is never one that is just right for what you need!

Our hope is that in creating this collection of graphic organizers, we are providing teachers with a large selection of choices. This will make it easier to find a just-right fit for your students.

Using These Organizers

We always find it helpful to model a graphic organizer before expecting students to complete one independently.

You can use the graphic organizer during your mini-lesson. After sharing a read aloud, model for students how to complete the page.

Some of the organizers can be a good addition to your small group instruction.

We have created a wide variety to make differentiating in your classroom easier.

Once children have been guided through the process, the organizer can be an option during independent reading.

You might hold on to the organizers you complete during your mini-lessons. These can then serve as a reference for students who might need a little help.

Skills covered include:

  • Identifying who, what, where, when and why
  • Answering questions about the text
  • Identifying important events in a story
  • Making a storyboard to retell a story
  • Find the message in a story
  • Creating a timeline
  • Identifying the story elements
  • Outlining and then writing a summary
  • Making inferences
  • Determining character traits
  • Compare and contrast characters in a book
  • Share a scene from a story
  • Identify character’s emotions
  • Identify the theme of a book
  • Sharing the problem and solution
  • Writing about your reaction to a book

Thank you for such a useful free download. This is exactly the type of literature response worksheets I was looking for to use during my next class class novel. I will enjoy using these with my middle school students.
