This graphic organizer is ideal for students to use to summarize the important facts about a fable or folktale: title, characters, problem in the story, and the moral or lesson learned. It is aligned to the 2nd and 3rd grade Common Core standards RL.2.2 and RL.3.2. I used this in the classroom for direct instruction and independent practice in whole group reading and to send home for homework. It could also be used in guided reading. Please note that this file does not include lesson plans, just the graphic organizer.
As an ESOL teacher, my instruction supports the academic language needed for students to master the grade level reading and/or writing standards they are learning in their homeroom classes; therefore, my resources could be used by any teachers who teach reading and writing in the elementary grades.
Graphic organizers are a best practice to help ESOL students understand new concepts while simultaneously learning new vocabulary. Check out some of my other graphic organizers here:
