Kids will have fun gobblin’ up Common Core State Standards with this pack of graphic organizers for nonfiction reading! Use for read-alouds, shared reading, Guided Reading, reading intervention, independent reading, literacy centers, for guided practice, or for assessment; the possibilities are endless!
Use as reader responses for nonfiction.
Perfect for the nonfiction reading you will be doing to learn about Thanksgiving! But, you can use the organizers with any nonfiction text! Organizers were designed to help students interact with a text and to develop and demonstrate an understanding of the text(s).
Graphic organizers are all done in line art- black and white-to save you ink! All printables are decorated with Thanksgiving and fall theme clip art. However, where possible, I also included duplicates of some organizers without the Thanksgiving graphics so you can use throughout the year.
