25 Language Arts Graphic Organizers for You and Your Kids
"Language arts graphic organizers just seem to work magic with kids.

I guess it's really no surprise--they just seem to GET IT better when they have a means of visually organizing their thoughts.

When they can analyze what they have read, when they can plan a writing project, or when they can collaborate with others in pictorial form, the "lights" in their heads just seem to burn more brightly.

The 25 language arts graphic organizers that you will see on this page, in my opinion, will enhance your instructional initiatives with your kids.

These PDF documents come with a clickable Table of Contents that makes it easier to quickly find what you need.

Just pick the one you want, print it, make copies for your kids, and hand them out! "

Frank Chimero - How to Have an Idea [The sequence quoted here is like the difference between standardized testing and formative assessment.]
A computer's brain: "You bough socks on Amazon! You'll *love* these sock monkey dolls! (erm, no, I won't …)" [You scored in the top ten percent of kids in the nth grade nationally. You must be smart!]<br />
<br />
Human brain: "You bought socks! This reminds me of this one time that my friend Mitch and I… (illogical, but hopefully meaningful)" [You helped out a classmate. And you mentioned how their predicament reminded you of something you struggled with over the summer, something that was completely unrelated except for the emotional reaction that it got out of you. Watching and helping your classmate gave you a better understanding of yourself and motivated you to share how you have changed. You are a thoughtful and caring person.]<br />
<br />
"Our brains are not computers. Effectiveness is measured by the quality of the illogical connections, not logical ones."
