Differentiated Graphic Organizers

Hi everyone!  Thanks for entering my giveaway last week and congrats to all of the winners!  I am working on getting everything shipped/emailed out this week.   I spent most of my work time last week working on a new product, which I am so excited about!  I have been wanting to have a system for graphic organizers in my classroom.  I tend to use them at least once a week whole-group in class as well as several times a week during guided reading time.  I hated that I never had exactly what I wanted...most of the organizers out there that I've bought have tiny shapes for the kids to write in.  Hello!  Kids can not write successfully in a small shape {and I def. can't read it}!  They need SPACE!  I kept that in mind when creating this product.  I also wanted to differentiate this product so I could accommodate my struggling writers.  This set includes 21 graphic organizers that can be used with ANY story.  Each organizer has an "easy" and "on level" option included.  You can pick which ones best suits the needs of your children.  The borders/fonts are the same on both options so your strugglers will hardly notice they are doing different work.




I created labels for file folders and copied sets of each organizer to place inside.  This will ensure that I have the organizers at my fingertips, like I've always wanted!  I used a plastic hanging folder to put my organizers in.  I like the fact that I am not storing these in a file cabinet, because I want to be able to carry the organizers around my room in case I need a few during guided reading.

I am so proud of this product and I hope that you enjoy it for years to come!  It's on sale for the next 24 hours!  Click the cover below to take a peek!

I love seeing how teachers organize things and your method is perfect! Everything in one place and split by level. Great thinking!
