Another Freebie

I have been working with my reading groups on responding to their reading with graphic organizers.  One of my lower groups is still having a difficult time determining what happens in the beginning, middle and end of the story.  I have seen quite a few graphic organizers for this online and they have worked well.  I wanted to create one that we can use until Valentine's Day.  My plan is to have the students write a few words in each heart and then illustrate.  After they have that down I will show them how to use their organizer to write a book review about the book that they read.  Making sure they understand that they should highlight main things happened throughout the story, but they should not rewrite the story word for word.   Click on the picture below to be taken to my TPT store where you can download this for FREE!


  1. Google docs gives me trouble sometimes. Our district sticks stuff on it all the time and I really don't know how to find anything on there!

    One of my tricks is to convert what I've made into a pdf. it's really easy to do in the microsoft word program. Then your item is really easy to upload to your TpT store and people can't mess with your creation.

  2. I updated it to that. I have heard so many great things about Google Doc's but my experience hasn't been the greatest! Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks for the tip!
