WORD MAPS

One of the best finds in my teaching career was graphic organizersThe first time I learned about using them in the classroom was a pivotal change in my approach to teaching comprehension and vocabulary.  It was such a  simple idea...create a document that would allow children to put something concrete in front of them so that they could "see" their thinking.  One of my favorites for building vocabulary is a word map.  I have created a few and have put them up here to share.  I hope you find them useful.
