Now that your students have been introduced to summary writing, let them have a little fun with it!
After reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas, have your students use this simple form to write a summary of this favorite! You will want to remind your students to reread their writing to make sure they have good, complete sentences that make sense. They should also check for capital letters and correct end marks. But don’t stop there! We have also included those all important, higher-level thinking questions, as well!
These are the same forms we use when teaching summary writing, as well as higher level thinking. Remember, we make everything for our own students and then pass them on to you, because there is just Not a SECOND to LOSE!
