Graphic Organizer: Elementary Report Writing
To prepare for the many informative writing tasks they will have at the junior high and high school levels, elementary students need to learn the basics of writing reports. Time4Writing can help with all aspects of elementary report writing, including guiding students step-by-step through the writing process in our eight-week Elementary Narrative Writing and Elementary Informative Writing courses.
One tool that makes writing easier for elementary, middle, and high school students are writing graphic organizers. Graphic organizers are diagrams that guide students in creating visual representations of the facts, ideas, and concepts of a given school assignment. Due to their visual nature, graphic organizers support a wide range of students, including those with special needs and English language learners.
Time4Writing is making available a free graphic organizer for report writing that will help elementary level writers organize their facts and research in a visual format. Students in grades two through five, who might normally struggle with the prewriting phase of a research report, may find this graphic organizer to be an especially helpful aid.
