I have been teaching for many years in grades K-3. I’ve always used composition books to record my students’ reading and writing thinking. In the past, I’ve not so neatly, glued graphic organizers and activities into notebooks. It was a great way of showing progress throughout the year. Now, I’ve seen so many wonderful examples of interactive notebooks and graphics for interactive notebooks that I just couldn’t resist turning some of my old favorite graphic organizers for comprehension strategies into a more “interactive” style! I’m jumping on the bandwagon!
Readers must understand the basic message of a text. As research shows us, this basic understanding is the first step in being able to think critically about a text. It allows students a foundation for thinking beyond a text, anchoring inferences with evidence and allowing students to create unique interpretations. Utilizing the interactive organizers in my pack, you’ll be able to assess your student’s understanding of story elements.
In this pack are interactive graphic organizers to include:
-Story Elements Sentence Stem Staggered Book
-Beginning-Middle-End Accordion Book
-Beginning-Middle-End Book Fold
-Story Mountain Anchor Chart
-First-Next-Last Book Fold
-Identifying Characters and Setting Shutter Fold
-Characters and Setting Anchor Chart
-Identifying Problem and Solution Shutter Fold
-Problem and Solution Anchor Chart
-Story Elements for Literature Bubble Maps
-Story Elements for Non-Fiction Bubble Maps
I've also included all of the above graphic organizers for story elements in a non-interactive format as well!
Happy Reading and Writing!
