This product was created as a supplement to the Rigby Literacy By Design reading series. Theme 16 (Every Drop Counts) contains graphic organizers for these selections: Gugu's House, Splash!, and Fun in the Water.
The graphic organizers may be used during whole group and small group lessons. The PDF files are fully projectable for use on whiteboards. My students love the visually appealing files and the organizers allow them to expand their thinking.
