What educators are saying

I used these as reading responses in my ELA classes. The students were engaged and it was a great resource!


Our district adopted the new Common Core Standards during the 2011-12 school year. We have gone through the process of unpacking them and we are implementing them. These graphic organizers can be used as an instructional tool or as a way to assess students on the common core standards (perfect for standards-based report cards). These graphic organizers were developed and aligned with 4th grade ELA Common Core Standards, but they are suitable for 3rd grade and 5th grade students as well. They are also wonderful for those that implement Reader's Workshop in their classroom. In this packet you will find the following graphic organizers.

There are 45 graphic organizers in all.
