PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please visit my blog, www.CFClassroom.com for daily photos and tips on organizing and managing your classroom.

This FREE packet was created to be used by teachers in grades K-5 and as such includes a variety of graphic organizers and writing page templates. The materials were designed to make modifications easy within your classroom because we all have students at very different levels.

The pages are open-ended and versatile enough to use as a research project, non-fiction, informational text reader response, or for creative writing. There is a lot of choice and variety. The packet includes:
-printables to make a color or black and white schema chart to anchor learning
-3 graphic organizers for researching / planning
-3 graphic organizers for webbing writing
-2 different draft pages (primary- and intermediate-ruled)
-5 choices of final copy paper
-several options for publishing (class book cover, individual student book/report cover, and a sign for an easy bulletin board)

These can be used independently by older learners or cooperatively with younger learners. There are cloze/illustrating pages for our littlest learners.

Be sure to check out all of my other writing packets. I have lots to choose from.

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 6, 2014TinyGrads (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!
