Making Connections Graphic Organizer

Free | 1 page|Grades: 1 - 5

A graphic organizer for students to record text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections.

Use this resource when working with your students on making connections to a piece of text.

Students record the title of their text and then list text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections.

The instructions have intentionally been left off this worksheet allowing you to differentiate within your classroom. Some students may be able to write their connection, while others may need to draw pictures or cut pictures out from magazines to create a collage.

You might like to use this resource as a reading center activity.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF, editable Word, or Google Slide version.
