Thinking Maps Thursday

This post will share two different ways I used Thinking Maps in my class this week. Below is a class bulletin board that shows all of the Thinking Maps we have learned. 
Using a Flow map to show the steps in writing letters

 I have been on the lookout for a Halloween book loaded with rhyming words, and I found it!! We read the story, One Witch, we illustrated the rhyming words in this story. We learned about the Bridge Map below

Tomorrow we plan to read our map and look at the spelling patterns of the rhyming words. There are a few words that rhyme but have different spelling patterns.

 We listed the rhyming words.  

 Students illustrated the picture, and I took a ruler and outlined the sides. I wrote the words on an index card (one small cut in half).

This is VERY long!!


  1. I've only seen the bridge map once before, so I'm totally new to it. It intrigues me. I'd love to know more.

  2. I second Tammy's comment. You are pushing me (in a good way) to incorporate more thinking maps in my class. Thanks.

  3. I know! The Bridge Map scared me when I took the class but that book I mentioned has so many ways to use them in a primary classroom that seemed doable!! Melissa

  4. I am with all those above- I want to know more about this! I love thinking maps and the possibilities of using them. I appreciate you sharing how you use them!
