This product has been updated (6/12/14) to include SEVEN writing graphic organizers your students can use to plan and organize their writing pieces: narrative writing, two versions of opinion writing, informational writing, and how-to writing. I’ve also included two prewriting sheets for research reports: an animal report and a planet report.
