This graphic organizer is good to implement when leading in to addressing the following third grade standards:
ELACC3RL1: Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
ELACC3RI1: Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
ELACC3RL2: Recount stories, including fables, folktales, and myths from diverse cultures; determine the central message, lesson, or moral and explain how it is conveyed through key details in the text.
ELACC3RI2: Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.
ELACC3RL3: Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events.
The learners can also list their story titles under the definition flap (or on to notebook paper if you print double-sided) after they read a given tale. This task reinforces the vocabulary terms.
