Spanish graphic organizers mirror the English graphic organizers and can support all subject areas, languages,
abilities, and levels of learning. Our collections for primary (grades K-2) and intermediate (grades 3-6) are
arranged according to the reading strategy, comprehension skills, or learning process they best facilitate.
The majority of the organizers in both collections can be adapted for use in all bilingual, dual language,
or Spanish immersion classrooms, or to support English language learners in mainstream classes.
The human brain naturally looks for connections between old and
new information. Additionally, studies have shown that the brain
processes information most efficiently in chunks. Graphic organizers
complement both of these processes by helping students in Spanish bilingual, dual language, and immersion classrooms:
Visually sort new information into familiar categories
Analyze the relationships between old and new information
Create a simple structure for thinking about information in new ways
Review concepts and demonstrate understanding
Spanish graphic organizers can be used in all phases of Spanish language
learning from brainstorming ideas to presenting research findings.
How to Use Graphic Organizers
Teacher guidance may be necessary when using graphic organizers with early readers.
As readers progress, they may benefit from completing the organizers independently.
Worksheets for Leveled Books and
Fiction Series contain at least one graphic
organizer specific to each book, but you can use any graphic organizer with any text to support comprehension.
