Appropriate for 2nd through 5th grade students.
Students may use this chart to brainstorm or draft their story.
Beginning, middle with main ideas and details, and end or conclusion are included. Teachers may use this map as a thinking skills chart or to support instruction in GATE icons used by Dr. Sandra Kaplan.
This graphic organizer is very useful for students in RSP or on IEP plans for language arts and writing.
The end result of this graphic organizer can be made into a single paragraph writing or expanded into a 5 paragraph essay.
I have also included the "no frills" version for you to add in your own wording or icons.
