Teach your students to summarize a fictional piece of literature by using the "Somebody Wanted But So Then" strategy. This bundle of activities includes many practice opportunities! Students will read and summarize FOURTEEN fictional pieces.
Begin by using the 54-slide PowerPoint to introduce the concept. In the first half of the PowerPoint, students will summarize Three Billy Goats Gruff and two other passages. The latter half addresses what a writer should do when the Somebody Wanted But So Then strategy doesn't quite fall into place. In this section, students will summarize The Emperor's New Clothes and an original passage. (The PowerPoint file includes a companion handout.)
Next, use the Readers' Theater Script and Summarizing Activity. After reading the 8-page script, students will write a summary on the foldable that is included.
Six additional practice passages and a poster complete the resources in this bundle.
This bundle also includes a 5-day lesson plan document where I outline how I would use these materials over the course of one week. Answer keys are included for each resource.
Please check out the PREVIEWS of each individual resource to see what is in this bundle!
