This is a summarizing activity that can stand alone or be used with any book. This was made with 2nd graders in mind, but could easily be used for 1st or 3rd graders also. Cut apart the story & summary cards. Have the students match the stories to the correct summary. These sheets can be used as a quick assessment for summarizing. It could also be used for whole or small group instruction or a reading station. The students can work on this sheet independently with little or no help from me.
