Graphic Organizers

I just discovered the Graphic Organizer Maker from Recipes4Success. This is a handy tool for when you find yourself in a bind and need something ASAP for the afternoon lesson. The site is easy to use, with clear directions. Click on the “new” button for a full explanation of how to create a customized organizer.

Use the graphic organizer Maker to create customized graphic organizer worksheets. Choose from concept maps, KWHL charts, Venn diagrams, timelines, cycles, and more. If this is your first time using the Graphic Organizer Maker, click the New button to begin.


I always find myself using graphic organizers in the classroom to teach reading comprehension strategies. I think I’ll use a Though Web or a Five Ws Chart to do some prewriting activities.

Classroom Tip: Make one copy of each organizer on an overhead projector sheet to use for whole group instruction.

    That does look pretty handy, I will have to try it out. I usually print them off from EduPlace.com which has a whole bunch of really nice graphic organizers, the kids just love them.
