If you’re like me, you’re always looking for different ways to test your students' comprehension. I love using graphic organizers to see which students are struggling with certain skills, but a plain old worksheet is simply boring! Spice up your “worksheets” with these think mats!
What I love about using these in the classroom is that they can be used with ANY text! Once you prepare the mats (3 short, easy steps), you can change out the passages and/or use the same passage to practice multiple skills. Since the mats are laminated, students can use markers to record their thinking, making these mats completely reusable! No more running a million copies! :)
These mats are also wonderful to simply use as graphic organizers.
10 Think Mat graphic organizers are included covering the following skills:
-Cause and Effect
-Main Idea and Details
-Compare and Contrast
-Making Connections (T-T, T-W, T-S)
