I love timelines. They encourage students to focus on sequencing and summarizing. Here are 3 timelines I made that work for various grade levels. Click here to see the 3 printable PDFs: Blank Timeline Templates. Enjoy!

Thank you to Diane for submitting this fun book report poster. It’s legal size (paper) worksheet and is great for lower grades (or as an easy project for upper grades). Great end of the year project (present on your favorite book from the year) or as an end of the quarter/semester project.
Here’s a paragraph writing planner that will help your students understand the parts of a paragraph. After they fill in the flower side, have them write their rough draft paragraph using the provided lines. Often I find lots of cute graphic organizers for kids, but kids don’t quite understand how to go from the cute picture to a paragraph of sentences. So this one’s very simple: plan and then write downs the ideas on the flower (from the top to the bottom) and they’ll have a complete paragraph.

It’s nice to have some literacy-related graphic organizers ready (for a crazy day, an emergency sub folder, etc.). Here’s one that asks students to analyze their favorite character in a story. This could lead to a paragraph, picture or some other enrichment activity.
This page is just what it sounds like: a graphic organizer set up to compare 2 characters. Add this to your collection of go-to’s when you’re not sure just what to do with that reading group… Easy-peasy!
As an elementary school teacher, you’re never really done reviewing parts of speech. So how about doing a parts of speech graphic organizer as a literacy block assignment? This graphic organizer is simple enough to work for both lower and upper grades. Enjoy!
