I LOVE using foldables and graphic organizers in my classroom. I think it really helps visual and/or kinestic learners organize their thinking. The following are specific graphic organizers I use with fiction stories we read.
1 Fiction Summary (S, W, B, S, T) Foldable or Flip Book - Fold Hot Dog Style
1 Non-Fiction Summary (5W's + H)
1 Character Trait Graphic Organizer
