The apps used in this document are:

Created for K-2 students, the set of graphic organizers can be used with any reading series or program to teach reading comprehension with or without technology. Use the organizers as part of a balanced literacy program to scaffold students to higher comprehension. If you have iPads in the classroom then take the notebook to a whole new level of engagement with the tools provided in this product.
