This book companion for Best Friends by Steven Kellogg comes with 3 differentiated versions of a Cause and Effect graphic organizer that is perfect for small group or independent work. The graphic organizers contain actual lines of a text from the story so that students can practice using Close Reading strategies in order to determine the cause and effect of various events from an authentic text. The below level version features larger text size and sentence starters. The on level version eliminates sentence starters and requires more text analysis. The above level version provides no sentence starters or prompts, and requires students to write their own cause and effect from the story. I hope you enjoy!
