Product Description
This set includes 23 scaffolded Expository Writing / Informative Writing Graphic Organizers for grades K-6. These organizers work with ANY INFORMATIVE PROMPT! They have been created for each grade level individually to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards by following a “Top Hat” format.

This Set Includes:
* 2 kindergarten graphic organizers
* 3 1st grade graphic organizers
* 3 2nd grade graphic organizers
* 2 3rd grade graphic organizers
* 3 4th grade graphic organizers
* 3 5th grade graphic organizers
* 2 6th grade graphic organizers
* 2 text feature pages for grades k-2
* 2 text features pages for grades 3-6
* 1 reference page with linking words and phrases

I have found that the Top Hat format is easy for students to remember and duplicate when working independently or needing to draw their own organizers for state testing (grades 3-6). When followed correctly, this format takes the guesswork out of trying to fulfill the requirements of the standards. For teacher reference, the standards have been listed at the bottom of each page along with a link to the CCSS website.

This set is perfect for differentiating instruction. Teachers can choose the graphic organizer that best meets the needs of each student. Higher level organizers can be used for enrichment and lower level organizers can be used for struggling writers.

The organizers are also useful for scaffolding instruction by having the whole class begin with a simpler graphic organizer, working their way up to one that is more complex.

Because the Common Core State Standards require students to begin using linking words and phrases in 3rd grade, a page of common linking words and phrases has been included with this set. This page could be copied on the back side of any of the graphic organizers for students to use as a reference. For the grade levels that require linking words and phrases, you will notice a “link” symbol on the graphic organizers. This is the location where students should place the words of their choice from the list provided.

I hope you find this resource to be useful in helping your students to succeed with informative writing! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or recommendations. I would also greatly appreciate your Feedback and Rating!
