Description

Perfect for grades 3 – 6

The goal of this resource is to help students sharpen their ability to summarize. It provides students with a practical process that initially guides them to relevant information from the text using a graphic organizer. I also ask them to read a summary and identify different issues (irrelevant details, opinions, not enough information, retelling events out of order, etc.). Once students progress through this resource and become familiar with the summary-writing process, I remove the use of a graphic organizer and ask them to write their own summaries. Additionally, they will be asked to make increasingly-detailed critiques of others summaries to identify issues and explain how to improve the summary.

This resource includes everything you will need to practice characters with your students! I’ve included THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EACH PASSAGE for you to easily differentiate in your classroom!

This resource addresses the following skills:

1.) Completing a graphic organizer (Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then)

2.) Writing a summary based on the text

3.) Identifying errors in a completed summary

4.) Identifying the correct summary out of a group of four summaries

5.) Critiquing a summary and writing to explain the issues and how to make it better

**A digital version is also included for use with Google Classroom.**

With the digital version, you have the option to go 100% paperless.

Leveled Passages

This resource contains ten differentiated fiction passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate with your students. The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels, which can be found in the top left corner of each passage.
