Writing a summary is an essential skill that your students will need throughout their school years and beyond. The purpose of a summary is to restate the author’s main point and details in your own words.
Writing a good summary demonstrates that your students understand what they read. Writing a good summary allows for improved understanding of the text and helps children analyze and critique what they have read.
Organizing thoughts and information may be difficult for young children. Keeping a summary short, retelling only the important ideas, is key to a good summary.
