Welcome to the Lit Café where words are the food!

Introduce or practice the idea of objective summaries with this fun, easy, ready-to-go, mini-lesson. Invite your students to the Lit Café. Students read very short, engaging stories and summarize them based on the "somebody, wanted, but, so, then" method. Students take notes on a guided-note placemat, read stories from a menu, and write summaries on a plate.

Included in this resource:

  • Detailed lesson plan
  • Lit Café Menu (one with a prompt for theme, one without)
  • Lit Café Guided Note Placemat
  • Lit Café Plate Graphic (can be used in place of real paper plates)
  • Summarization Presentation (in .pdf format)
