Anyway, homework was on my mind today and I thought about the Thinking Maps I used as homework before. Basically, students would receive one page with Thinking Maps on each side, totaling 4 for the week. Each night, students would read 20 minutes, then "respond" to their reading by completing a map.
I wanted to match this activity to Common Core standards and be very intentional with my practice activities so I decided to start to create my own graphic organizers to match the standards.
What I love about these:
1. I don't work in a county where all graphic organizers are mandated to be Thinking Maps
2. Common Core standard reference on every organizer
3. I CAN statement on every organizer-this allows students (and parents) to see WHY they are doing what they are doing.
So here are the first few, of course it is a work in progress, but I am too excited to wait until they are all finished! I am still working on converting to PDF also, but I promise I will share when I do!
