What educators are saying

These graphic organizers are an excellent addition to my collection and will hugely useful for my students this year.
Caitlin and Jessica from EB Academics are absolutely the best! You can't go wrong with purchasing from them! Thank you!


These DIGITAL and PRINT multi-purpose Common Core Aligned Informational Text Graphic Organizers can be utilized in a number of ways in your classroom. They are excellent resources to use whenever you’re studying an informational text.

These are not your basic, fill-in-the-blanks graphic organizers. Rather, they have your students work closely with the text, using in-depth questions to spark critical-thinking skills that are a must in middle school. You won't find a blank box with "What's the main idea?" in the middle - this resource is much, much more in-depth than that!

We know you’ll be able to utilize this resource for years to come – you can even use it across the curriculum in various other subjects. Enjoy!
