This graphic organizer is perfect for Read Across America Week! I created this graphic organizer to use in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday to use with one of my personal favorites "The Lorax".  The additional page is blank, so that the teacher may input his/her own causes or effects or the students may completely fill it in themselves.

Teaching Problem & Solution

Teaching Problem & Solution can always be very tricky with students. They have a hard time identifying it in many cases. I want to try this book this year with my graders to kick off this type of reading and writing.

This link leads to the HarperCollins Kids site where you can download printables to go along with many of their most popular children's books!

Great printables for tons of books! Sheffler - tons of cute activity sheets for Amelia Bedelia and Fancy Nancy, Little Critter, Mary Engelbreit and classics :)
