This is a poster to help students answer W questions like who? what? when? where? why?
I turned this into a giant poster and laminated it so that we can refer to it all year long.
Each question has a symbol and color code to help students go back into their text and cite their evidence. After reading a passage, we go back into the text and underline for example the characters names in orange and draw a stick figure by their names to remember those are the characters.
Each child also hand made their own personal size mini poster on an index card to keep in their desk to refer back to. :-)
