I truly enjoyed creating this packet and hope you enjoy using it as much as I do. There are so many ways to incorporate it into your class. Thinking maps are a great way to get students’ thoughts out of their head and onto paper. This packet can be printed out and copied for every child to complete, or it can be used as a guide for students to create their own thinking maps to be put up around the classroom. Every type of thinking map is represented in this packet. Common core writing practice and assessments are included, along with vocabulary. I have chunked the book into units and have included comprehension and vocabulary tests for every five chapters.
