Product Description
Happy Holidays! I made this set free as a little Holiday gift for you. I hope you and your students enjoy them!

This set of summarizing task cards includes ten cards for Christmas, five for Hanukkah, and five for Kwanzaa. The cards are about cultural traditions and practices so they will work in a public school setting. The first ten cards are informational text (nonfiction) while the last ten are fictional. A two-page student answer sheet is provided. Print it double-sided, or just use one or the other if you want to focus on either informational or fiction text. There is also a suggested answer key.

The card challenge students to summarize the paragraph in just 12 words or less. By presenting only one paragraph at a time, the often overwhelming task of summarizing becomes much more manageable. In addition, the word count limit will keep students from simply rewriting the entire paragraph. You may want to remind students that they must answer with a complete sentence (the challenge was issued as a word count instead as limiting to one sentence to avoid long, run-on sentences as answers). You may want to allow 15 words for students who are struggling with 12.

Because summarizing is such a difficult skill, I have included a SUM reminder card. There is also a cover card and two Challenge Cards to extend the learning.
