This is a graphic organizer used to help students organize their thoughts when they are working on the comprehension strategy of synthesizing information. Usually, I would model it the first day, use partners the second, and finally independent work later in the week.
This is my third year of teaching. I taught second grade for the first two years, and I am now teaching kindergarten. I loved second grade, but I am really enjoying kindergarten as well! It is so different, but they all need love!
