Product Description

This product is a graphic organizer that I created to use for portfolio writing in first grade. It meets the level 3 expectations on the Portfolio Rubric for Tennessee, which includes 1.RL.KID.2 and 1.W.TTP.3. The students will write two details from the beginning, two details from the middle, two details from the end, and a closure using this graphic organizer.

Here is an outline explaining the organization:

  • Beginning
    • Main Event
    • Thought or Feeling
  • Middle
    • Main Event
    • Thought or Feeling
  • End
    • Main Event
    • Thought or Feeling
  • Closure (Central Lesson)

The details and closure are numbered 1-7 so that students know how to transfer the retelling from the organizer to a paragraph. As the students learn to use the organizer correctly, we will work to combine the two sentences in the beginning, middle, and end. We will also add time order words. Please note that the students should have at least one feeling and one thought in their writing.

Thank you for looking! Feel free to ask questions!
