When using the DRA2 Level 28 (or Fountas and Pinnell L-M) to assess second grade readers, they often get hung up on the writing portion of the comprehension assessment. Use this lesson to prepare your students for the summary.
This is one LESSON PLAN that introduces summaries by using a small nutshell (nutshell not included)! It's a simple word document worksheet that looks almost exactly like the level 28 assessment and will be familiar for the DRA2 assessment. This file also contains a lesson plan to go with it that is not pictured.
