This is a story tower where children illustrate the title on one card, the setting, author's purpose, beginning, middle, end! They write sentences or a paragraph on the back. Then they build it. This can be a group activity, where each child does one card to build a group story tower or each child can make their own.(Pic only/See explanation above)
The students read the passage independently then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper (everyone has a square). In their box they write the answer and the evidence that helped them KNOW the right answer not just THINK the right answer. - Mrs. Holmes Eclectically Educating
These interactive notebooks for 4th grade reading are AWESOME. Each organizer comes with a mentor text idea along with all of the answers if you use this text + a blank template for you to use with any text! Read the mentor text then do the included mini-lesson on each standard. Your students will have awesome notes with REAL examples from REAL text.
