Product Description

Students can use these graphic organizers to find the main idea of a narrative. The first one requires students to identify the main details ("who" and "what happened") and include the most necessary details ("where," "when," "why," "how," "problem," and/or "what next.") Students fill in the applicable boxes, add up the important details, cross out any non-important details, and synthesize their answers into one grammatically correct sentence.

A second graphic organizer is included to help the student "keep it short." I find many students struggle on the "what happened" box, so the detail boxes allow them to write out everything and then summarize in the "what happened" box. For example, "bought fruit" +"cut up the fruit" + "put it in the bowl" can be summarized as "made a fruit salad." This graphic organizer can be used for scaffolding, but some students may find it more confusing, so use with your discretion.
