Wall support for nonfiction writing assignments!

This colorful wall or easel chart is a perfect reference for writing elementary nonfiction summaries.

One glance helps kids in grades 3 to 6 remember the key steps in fully explaining what they learned from a nonfiction book…and it shows any classroom visitors what you are working on during readers workshop.

I provide two different options for creating this anchor chart:

  • You can use the cut-and-glue kit. Print it out on standard paper, trim it a little and put it together. Laminate it and you’ll be able to use it year after year!
  • I also include a small version for you to 3-hole punch and put in a notebook. Your students will have access to the information even after you take down the anchor chart.

Make teaching reading more effective for your students in third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades. PDF printable downloads include:

  • Full instructions for usage and printing
  • Cut-and-gule kit for a 27 x 33 inch (69 x 84 cm) poster
  • Page to 3-hole-punch and place in a notebook
