PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Summary writing is an important critical thinking skill for young students to develop. It helps students discern important ideas from irrelevant information and improves their comprehension for what is being read.

This lesson includes a detailed lesson plan for teaching questioning and the use of the "Somebody Wanted But So Then" strategy. It also includes links to online streaming video programs for story books read aloud and links to print versions of popular fairy tales for use with the plan.

Also included is a "Writing a Summary" anchor chart, graphic organizer, answer key to class activity, student final draft page, bulletin board poster and explanation of lesson for display along with Common Core Standards addressed.

Once taught to your students, the questioning and SWBST strategy and graphic organizer can be used in conjunction with any text.

This is AMAZING. I was really struggling to get my kids understanding the concept of summarizing. They didn't get it until I tried using this! Now I use these templates for doing the summarizer role in my literature circles!
