KWL Charts and Generators

Looking for a good anticipatory set?  A KWL chart has one already built in.
Go here to easily generate and customize your own printable KWL chart. These are great easy to make graphic organizers.
I love how one of my credential students does this.  At the beginning of a chapter she passes out a sticky note and has her students write down anything they know and then puts it up on butcher paper.  At the end of the chapter she revisits this and they can write a whole lot more.  They can see their progress.  What a great visual!
Go here to check out a Spanish KWL chart and how to use KWL charts in your Spanish class.
