Do your students have trouble writing summaries? Do you struggle getting students to pick out the most important details from a text? Use this 5 sentence summary! Adapted from Jennifer Serravallo's Five Sentence Summary Strategy- I broke down each finger and gave writing space for each part. This helps students visually see that they should have 5 parts and there are little hints for each finger. This works great with ELLs!
