Great Graphic Organizers To Use with Any Book! 50 Fun Reproducibles & Activities To Explore Literature & Develop Kids' Writing. Grades 2-6.
This book is designed to help students in elementary school identify core literary concepts such as character development, setting development, and plot development in the books they read, then integrate what they have learned into their own writing. The underlying assumption is that the reader is somewhat familiar with the 5-step writing process: pre-writing, drafting, revision, editing, and final copy, and, although the text speaks to students directly, it will require adult supervision and guidance in most cases. Chapters are: (1) Introduction; (2) Story Style; (3) Story Setting; (4) Story Characters; (5) Story Plot; (6) Projects Recommended by Kids; (7) Reference Books; and (8) Reproducible Graphic Organizers.
