Do your students have a difficult time understanding how to summarize a story? I have created anchor charts to help your students better understand what it means to summarize.
*What summarizing means while reading
*Identify the most important details and events
*What should I ask my myself to decide if a detail is important
*To summarize means to put it in your own words
*Tell events in the order they occurred
*A summary can help you understand and remember the events in a story
