Genius Tip! After reading a text, give students 20 counters. Then have them give a 20 word summary of what they read. Perfect for younger students who might not be ready to write their summaries, but get them to think about what they are sharing.
Students use hash tags to practice one-word summary writing. Can use as quick check for understanding of events, people, or theories. What an outstanding strategy!! Could even use at the end of a lesson to put on exit slip.
