Blackline Hamburger 3rd & 4th grade

GIANT HAMBURGER ORGANIZER with tips and reminders for the students at the top of each hamburger part. I have the students write their 3 BIG ideas in the left hand margin. (not on the intro or conclusion) That way when I check their topic sentence, I make sure it matches what their original brainstorm idea was. Notice how I sign off with my initials on each paragraph in the margin before they can move on to the next one?  Oh, and I won't even look at it if they forget to indent :) Click on hamburger for freebie!

  1. Your blog is really cute. I love the hamburger organizer. I would have to adapt it for kindergarten but it is really great. I just started blogging and I am now following you.

  2. I LOVE how big you made the organizer. I often find that 11 1/2 by 8 just doesn't cut it, and I have to enlarge everything! Brilliant idea! Thanks for making my life easier. I am your newest follower! Come and visit the New Year Linky Party I'm hosting on my blog at Maybe you will help me reach my goal of 100 followers by becoming MY newest follower!
    Happy New Year!

  3. I started talking to my kids about hamburger writing a couple of weeks ago, and have been looking for a great organizer! (and planning t make one when I have TIME!) My mom even made me an awesome hamburger with all the fixings from felt! We are on the same wavelength :)
    Your writing tips is very helpful. I will be using it conjunction with a writing prompt generator soon.
