I use this page with grades 2 - 5 ELA classes with vocabulary words or introducing a new topic. Students put the word in the middle and fill out the blocks. There are 2 different versions (Is / Is not, Can / Cannot and Is / Is Not, Can, Has)
For example, when introducing a story about voting. Students put "vote" in the middle box. They will then put ideas for what voting is (President, choosing a person for a job, etc.) in the appropriate box. They will then put phrases such as "king" and other things that are not voted on in the "Is Not" box. In the Can box, they can put things such as "choose a leader". In the Cannot box, they put things voting cannot do such as "enforce laws".
Below the boxes is a space to add more brainstorms or facts.
I hope you enjoy this resource and find it useful! This is my first Teachers Pay Teachers resource. I was encouraged by my coworkers to start putting my resources on here because I love helping other teachers out! Please check back often!
