This is a helpful tool that we developed for 4th grade writers. It helps them to organize their thoughts onto paper during the Pre-Writing phase and story development. It translates well to paper once they've mastered the concepts and students can be taught to make their own planning map with the 3 Fives using a sheet of notebook paper. This is also helpful for tests as it is easily adapted for use on standardized tests to ensure that students have proper organization, details, and development of ideas!
Look for the powerpoint that accompanies this planning form. There will also be a student booklet available for download!
