This is a page of notes and planning sheet that I created to use in my own fifth grade classroom. I needed something to help my students write extended constructed responses for our end of the year assessment, the Georgia Milestones. These are especially helpful for text-based writing (citing evidence). The informational resource that you are purchasing comes with one PDF file of scaffolded notes for students to keep in their writers' notebooks and one PDF file of a reproducible sheet for students to plan their writing on.
I teach my students by making copies of the planning sheets first, then slowly having them move to drawing the graphic organizer on their own paper. It is also helpful to have your students check off what they have written in their drafts on the actual planning sheet as they work.
