Do you need story elements graphic organizers to use in your elementary reading block?

Graphic organizers are an excellent resource to help visualize ideas, and they work fabulously while practicing parts of a story (including setting, characters, problem, and solution!).

I have a variety of paper and digital graphic organizers that you can easily fit into your reading block while utilizing any type of text that fits your schedule best.

Read-alouds, science passages, social studies primary source documents, literature circle books, small group reading books – literally ANYTHING works!

And don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to get your FREE color by number reading comprehension 🙂

I have a set of story elements graphic organizers available in my Story Elements Interactive Notebook!

What I LOVE about interactive notebooks is that they serve as a fabulous reference point for students – students can always flip back in their notebooks to remind themselves what a particular strategy is.

Interactive notebooks are fun and hands-on!

I have a great graphic organizer available that you and your students can use again and again with any text.

It is a simple puzzle-piece organizer, but it gets the job done 🙂

Digital Story Elements Graphic Organizers

I have a set of digital graphic organizers that are used with Google Classroom that are PERFECT for a technology center.

You can use these again and again, so you can assign via Google Classroom for students to either use with their independent reading book to fill out, or use a read-aloud and have them fill out.

You could also use these graphic organizers with a literature circle book!

Story Elements for Google Classroom comes with not only graphic organizers, but also interactive activities for students to practice this reading strategy.
