Graphic organizers are simple yet powerful tools that can help kids who have trouble with writing. They show kids how to plan out their writing. Many graphic organizers are fun to look at, too.

There are as many different kinds of graphic organizers as there are types of writing. These range from making a persuasive argument to mapping out an engaging story. It’s important to look for a graphic organizer that matches your child’s writing assignment. Many of these tools are available for free online.

These four organizers are commonly used in grade school, but they can help kids through high school. Each download also comes with an example of what the graphic organizer looks like when it’s filled in.

All you need to do to use these graphic organizers is print them out. (The designs are also simple enough that you can quickly draw them by hand.)

Choosing an engaging topic is another way you can encourage your child to write more.
