    Hello!
    I am a student teacher, and I am wondering if anyone has any cool "free" sites that i can go to to get some graphic organizers. My mentor teacher isn't really the helpful type, and so i am having to learn the hard way. thanks!

    The teacher section of the scholastic site also has some graphic organizers.. Search around they have some decent things on there too.

    Summersoff you can make Venn Diagrams and word webs right in Microsoft Word. You don't even have to draw them out, just a few mouse click and you have one. They are very simple to do and can be easily tailored to your needs. I just found out about this a few days ago.

    Are you talking about using the auto shapes in word or something else?

    Thanks!

    There's program called Inspiration that schools often get for older kids to help them make organizers... and there's a version for younger kids called Kidspiration. I haven't run across them in a while, but I know when we were talking about them in my methods classes, they came with a free trial to see if you like it or not...

    http://www.inspiration.com/

    is the website... might be worth checking out.

    I found it when I went to add an icon to my toolbar. I went to custom on the toolbar and I think it was under commands, insert, then scroll down and you will find some graphic organizers. I'm on my Mac right now and can't find it on Microsoft Office for Macs but later I will check on my PC and post how I found it.

    Our school has both Kispiration and Inspiration and they are terrific. If you can find a free trial try it out.
