Imagine you only have $2.00, and each word you use will cost you 10 cents.
See if you can “sum it up” in twenty words!
This is a great way to have students summarize Expository text. It can be used with any Expository text, from the students' textbooks to Storyworks/Scope magazines to Time for Kids to any Expository text.
Students can summarize the entire text on their own or in groups or the teacher can assign groups sections to summarize and then the students can become the teacher and present their section's summary to the class.
This worksheet can be used many ways!
(I have included four sections, but if your Expository text has more sections, simply run this worksheet double sided.)
