PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

20 SUMMARIZE TASK CARDS

- Use for literacy centers, test prep or bell ringers
- Fulfills common core standards R.L.2 & RI.2
- Perfect for differentiated materials

**Instead of boring text excerpts, use these task cards to share little know facts, thought-provoking concepts and fictional anecdotes to teach important values.**

Summarize It! Task Cards
Literature & Informational Text Cards for CCSS aligned differentiation

Each of these 20 Task Cards features a short passage (Grades 3 – 6):
➢ 10 are value-building fictional short stories
➢ 10 are fascinating non-fiction passages.

Students are challenged to summarize the passage in just fifteen words or less. Using short passages, the often overwhelming task of summarizing becomes much more manageable. In addition, the word count limit will keep students from simply rewriting sentences from the passage. Remind students to answer with a complete sentence.

There are two different answer sheets so that you can differentiate as needed: the easier multiple choice and the more difficult free response. There is also answer key applicable to both answer sheets so that students can check their own work. Students can also use notebook paper or journals to answer these questions.

Since summary is subjective, the answers on the free response answer key are suggestions, but your students may come up with different variations. The multiple choice answer sheet is conducive to discussing the difference between summary, theme and supporting details.

These cards can be used for individual practice or for your entire class or a small group by reading each story aloud and working together to determine the theme.

These cards will print in color or grayscale. Simply print and cut. Students can keep these in writer’s notebooks, reading journals or turn them in at the end of the activity. You can also print them on card stock or laminate them to use again and again. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.

These cards address CCSS.ELA- RL.2 & RI.2 for grades 3, 4,5, 6 and even 7.
