Thinking Maps for Kinders

I wanted my little students to become familiar with the Thinking Maps we use in the classroom, so I made these mini-posters to help them. The purpose is to help them (eventually) choose which Thinking Map they should use and know how it helps them organize their thinking and writing. Note: There are 7 total I made. The circle map doesn't contain a 'Frame of Reference' since I found that the 'Frame of reference is always the same - family, teacher, school, etc. I also chose to use the word Venn Diagram in lieu of Double Bubble - personal pet peeve of mine when (might as well teach them correctly the first time, so they don't move on to middle school still calling it a Double Bubble).  Click on the picture above to download. The font wasn't coming out correctly on scrib, so if you want the pdf file directly, just send me an email/comment. Happy Thinking!
