PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thinking Maps are a wonderful tool for students and teachers. I wanted to display posters of each map in my room but I don’t have a lot of wall space. So I made these 8 ½ x 11 posters bright and easy to read from a distance. They also work well under my document camera for whole group lessons.

Print up extra copies of the last page of speech bubbles to add to each poster (I used Velcro dots). The steps icon on the “Why is this important?” speech bubble encourages my students to think about steps that may be taken in the future as a result of what they’ve learned from the map’s information. This encourages them to go beyond simply restating their topic sentence. ☺

If you use Step Up to Writing in your classroom, you’ll recognize that these posters display a similar color scheme for the organization of a paragraph. For example, the flow map shows the yellow and red sentences from the middle of a paragraph. Add the green “What is the big idea?” speech bubble to represent the topic sentence. Add the green “Why is it important?” speech bubble to represent the concluding sentence.

I hope these posters make it easier for you and your students to utilize Thinking Maps effectively!
