PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Graphic Organizers for Reading: Teaching Tools Aligned with the Common is a 161-page ebook that includes over 3 dozen graphic organizers, but it's far more than a book of printables. It also includes mini-lessons for how to teach reading skills for informational text and literature selections with those graphic organizers. The strategies can be used with any reading program including literature circles, reading workshop, small groups, centers, or basal reading instruction. You'll love the step-by-step approach that explains how to create effective mini-lesson for almost any Common Core Standard. The book also includes Common Core charts for the Informational Text and Literature standards for Grades 2 through 6, and every chart lists at least one graphic organizer to help you teach that standard. In the digital version you can click on the name of the suggested graphic organizer and jump directly to the part that explains it! The Table of Contents also includes internal links to take you to each chapter or graphic organizer listed there. Download the printable sampler provided as a preview to see several examples of graphic organizer lessons.

You can save money by purchasing this book as a part of one of the following combos:
Power Reading Workshop and Graphic Organizers Ebook Combo
Mastering Math Facts and Graphic Organizers Ebook Combo
Laura Candler's Premium Math and Reading Ebook Combo


This book is also available in print from Compass Publishing page here: Laura Candler's Graphic Organizers for Reading.

On  September 15, 2013Emily Versluys (TpT Seller) said:
I love this! I am using this tomorrow with my students. I love that it is simple, yet it gets right down to what you want them to learn. I am using it when I have a sub as well. Simple enough that a sub can use it and still have the students learn.
On  September 15, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Thanks, Emily! I have heard other people say that it's great for a sub lesson, too. I guess I should promote that! Do you have a blog? If you do a blog review of it, let me know and I'll give it a shout out to my fans!

Thank you so much for all your hard work. Now that I know that the US Virgin Islands have adopted CCSS, perhaps I can retire there and teach CCSS with your wonderful materials.(lol)

On  December 27, 2012Laura Candler answered:
Hi!
You can purchase a print copy of my books that also includes a digital version for free from my website at www.goforreading.com. I only accept checks for $50 or more so you would have to purchase additional items as well to place a check order. I will email you with more information. Thanks!

On  August 22, 2012,  Michele K. asked:
Laura,
I have already added "Go For the Green" to my Laura Candler collection. :-) I just thought it was interesting that searching for it by the title got different results than searching for it using your name. I tried it both ways several times just to be sure I wasn't missing it. That was why I said that I didn't know if it was my computer or if TpT couldn't display all your wonderful titles in one place. :-)

On  August 22, 2012Laura Candler answered:
Thank you for letting me know. I found that if I don't put my name in my product description it won't show up in a search. I'll check the description now to see if that's the problem. I guess I misuderstood what you were saying. You would think that the search feature would automatically show products when someone searches for a seller's name, but it doesn't seem to do that.

On  August 21, 2012,  Michele K. asked:
Laura, thank you for responding. I don't know if it is just my computer or if you have too many products :-),but when I entered your name in the TpT search box "Go For the Green" did not show up among all the other items. However there was no problem when I searched by the title.

BTW your Showdown games are awesome.

Laura,
Your products are great. I already have paperback copies of Graphic Organizers and Power Reading Workshop. Will you be adding your "Go For the Green" behavior management system on TpT? I don't have a PayPal account but would love to use this website to purchase the system you developed.

Michelle, you can purchase from my site with a credit card. You click the checkout with Paypal button and look for the links to order with a credit card. But Go for Green is already on TpT!

Not a question... Just another comment. I am supposed to be working on narratives for my report cards. Instead, I am reading (closely) this great book about graphic organizers! I am making mental plans for using them as soon as we finish our benchmark testing this week. CanNOT thank you enough for such a clear resource!
