This is a great way to teach summarizing/retelling to your kiddos! Who doesn't LOVE ice cream?! In this lesson, students come to an understanding that the characters, settings, and events work together to create one "sweet" story. You can use any story with summarizing sundaes.
-Short summarizing poem students can easily memorize
-Large printable ice cream cone graphic organizer for the teacher (characters, settings, events, title) - I laminated mine so that I can reuse it with different stories
-Summarize anchor chart for student reference (reminds students what to ask themselves about characters, settings, and events)
-Student brainstorm sheet
-Ice Cream Cone Craftivity (students create their own ice cream cones to summarize/retell)
Feedback is always welcome! Enjoy! :)
