I'm super excited to share some amazing graphic organizers for reading created by April form The Idea Backpack! Since I will be teaching 4th grade this year, I took a look at her Reading Graphic Organizers for both 3rd and 5th grade. Both are correlated to Common Core Standards and even have the standards listed on each activity's page. I'll be reviewing each one separately.
I used the book, Those Shoes by Maribeth Boelts, to complete a sample graphic organizer for both 3rd and 5th grade.
Show April some love...go check these out and make your life easier and your instruction more rigorous! This is going to make teaching reading so much easier! :)
