I created a set of sentence frames for both Fiction and Non-Fiction texts to help students formulate their written responses. These are based on the Common Core State Standards for ELA, grades 3-5. Simple. Not frilly. BUT, useful.
I found these to be very helpful for students, especially as I have been trying to help students restate questions and refer specifically to the text in their written responses. Also, I have students use these frames as discussions starters during "turn and talks."
