The last few weeks of school I found myself wrapping up our new reading series with the students, and applying all of the skills we had learned throughout the year. Our last unit was heavy on non-fiction text, so I was combing through my brain thinking of new and different ways to respond....when on my doorstep appeared Laura Candler's new book,Laura Candler's Graphic Organizers for Reading: Teaching Tools Aligned with the Common Core. It showed up just in time to save the day!
Let me preface this by saying that Laura did send the book to me, but my review is in no way clouded by that. The opinions stated here are my own.
As I browsed through the book, there were quite a few of these organizers that caught my eye...mostly because they DIDN'T NEED COPIES to use! You see, this isn't a worksheet book, so much as a book with things that can be reused or created into foldables using plain paper. Case in point, this one.
OK...so there you have it. I really do enjoy this book. There are many, many more organizers in there that can go with just about any book you are reading in your class. I recommend it for all upper grade teachers.
And with that, I am giving a copy away to one of you!
