Product Description
If you're looking for a fun new way to help your student's write summaries, this is it! This simple, but engaging, post-reading activity encourages students to focus only on the most important ideas of a text and to practice writing in different contexts for different audiences.

Students write a "social media" post to summarize a text in a few sentences and conclude the post with a hashtag. They also get the opportunity to reinforce their summary with a picture.

This activity is certain to engage and excite your students!!

For ELLs:
-Review important vocabulary from the text that they should use in their writing.
-Explain the meaning of "hashtag," "social media," "summary" if necessary.

Modifications:
-Provide students with sentence frames such as... "In (Title), (character)..." or "The main idea is..."
-Brainstorm a hashtag as a class for everyone to use based on the theme of the text.

Extensions:
-Post students' writing around the classroom or in the hallway so that they can "like" and "comment" on others' posts. (Space for this is included in the activity.)

Pair with:
Check out my PPT template for digitally created "social media" posts to use technology. This activity could be a first draft for a digital final draft.
