The purpose of this study was to investigate how the use of graphic organizers impacts kindergarteners’ ability to comprehend on-level text. The measurement tool was the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment. This study involved use of a quasi-experimental design using a pre- and post-test. The application of graphic organizers during reading instruction did not significantly impact kindergarten students’ comprehension skills. Research in this area should continue as there is very little information available regarding using graphic organizers to impact comprehension of kindergarten students.
