This product includes visual steps for this method of summarizing. In addition a summary book is included.
I am using this product with my first graders with the book Matilda. We complete our summaries after reading a chapter of the book. I have also used a separate summary book during guided reading groups to reinforce the concept. I use the anchor chart pictured on the left to accompany the materials in this product when teaching summarization. We focus on this topic for about a month.
