This product is amazing for turning student thinking into organized writing. While a lot of instruction is based around guided writing, I felt I needed something more for my students to express what they learned from their reading.
Simply use a text (any genre or level, literary or informational) to read with your students. Have them organize their thoughts in the organizer and then turn their writing into a paragraph. My first graders are able to do this no problem by themselves after being guided through it a couple of times.
Steps are broken down for students so it is easy for them to visualize the writing process.
