Graphic Organizers for Newspaper and Magazine Articles from DocRunning Education on TeachersNotebook.com - (5 pages) - Three graphic organizers for students to organize information related to newspaper and magazine articles.
You can create your own front page of a newspaper at this site. I want to make one to display on the first day of school... since my classroom is comic book/superhero themed, I am going to write an article about the new fifth grade "Super Students" at FPE and how their powers of kindness, dedication, and loyalty will serve them and their school well! :) Cheesy, but cute.
This is an anchor chart created with a middle school class. It works well for any grade, but particularly fifth grade through high school. Often multiple other standards depend on the assumption that students in these grades recognize claims and can move on to evaluate the validity and strength of the multiple claims.
Start your middle & high English Language Arts class with these highly engaging bell ringers! Students will learn literary terms, debate ethical dilemmas, discuss quotations, and respond to video journals.
FREEBIE Advanced Plot Diagram from How~2~Teacher on TeachersNotebook.com (1 page) - Challenge your mature learners with this advanced plot diagram. Scaling up a hill is much more entertaining than filling in a pyramid or triangle with story elements. Try it--its FREE!
These mini anchor charts are a great addition to your interactive reader's notebook. Each anchor chart gives an explanation of a reading strategy or skill. Students can glue them in their journal for quick and easy reference while they are independently reading.
