This a FREE chart that I made to go along with the story 'The Great Kapok Tree' by Lynne Cherry. After reading, students are challenged to review the story and find the reasons that the animals (and the child) do NOT want the man to cut down the Kapok Tree.
* The chart is on two pages.
* I included the graphic of the story's title page on the top of the chart.
* This serves as a nice graphic organizer for the story and recording the sentiments of the animals.
* This story is in our 4th grade reading anthology, but could work for younger or older students.
I hope this is helpful to your and your teaching of this story.
