The following post is from Demetria of Christian Homeschool Moms:
Writing hasn’t been a favorite subject for one of my kids, so I have to dig up ways to make writing fun for her. My daughter is highly visual, so this main idea graphic organizer might be just the tool to help her get her thoughts flowing. Plus, the cute graphics always perk her interest.
One of the things I always appreciated about writing is creating a logical progression of thoughts, and what better way to do this (for a visual person like myself) than to use visual cues, like on this main idea graphic organizer.
I’m excited to share this main idea graphic organizer with you. Featured on it is a space for your student to write out the main idea of the topic she wishes to write about, along with three “clouds” of supportive details.
(If you are having clarity or troubleshooting issues with the printable, please check out these possible solutions.)
