I used this graphic organizer since the very first time we started reading informative texts, and it helped my kiddos a ton! After the first couple of weeks they were masters of facts and main ideas!
After a while we started using it for their research projects, so they could outline their ideas and then put them together in their reports.
I thought it would be helpful to share it, with so many of us trying to hit those Reading and Writing standards!!
It includes an English and a Spanish version. Hope you find it useful!!!
