What are other customers saying about this product?
"While this is going to be great for introducing and practicing summarization concepts, I'm also going to use this for a student that has difficulty with executive function and recall. SO glad I got this. Just what I didn't know I was looking for! ;-)"

"My 6-8 grade special education students really enjoyed guessing the movie summaries, and producing their own while peers tried to guess the movie. Thanks!"

"My kids had a lot of fun with these and then extended the activity to make up their own. Thanks!"
