I love using graphic organizers and interactive notebooks with my students in reading! They are perfect in small groups, collaboration, guided reading, reading response, homework, sub plans, and for assessment! I created these "ocean themed" (there's some kind of ocean related clip art on each page) to go with warm weather, ocean units, or an ocean themed classroom! They can be used with ANY fiction book!
Reading Skills include:
*Setting (by itself)
*Plot w/Setting (one for any book and one for a chapter book)
*Compare/Contrast (3 - character vs. character, character vs. student, and book vs. book)
*Cause and Effect
There are interactive notebook pages to go with each skill. For the figurative language, I created a simile page (one with three flaps and one with two) and then left one "open ended" for you to write in the skill you are teaching, reviewing, etc.
If you purchase this product, I'd love to hear your ideas on how you use these since it is so open-ended.
