How to Use These Graphic Organizers
For most students, we suggest modeling each graphic organizer before students are asked to complete one independently. This can make for a meaningful mini-lesson.
Model completing the organizer with the help of your students. Showing students how you think through the process of completing an organizer can help them be successful in the future when completing their own.
It is a valuable lesson because as you complete the organizer, you are sharing your thinking. This then helps them
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 storage spot for organizers students have been taught to use.
Once or twice during the week, students are asked to choose an organizer that fits their current independent reading selection and complete the organizer.
This option gives students choice and encourages some independence.
