This poster would be great to teach students about summarizing, as the NYS ELA Common core standards indicate : 4.RL.2 and 5.RL.2 asks students to summarize a text they have read. This poster can be a reference tool when students start summary writing.

Today we made a "Gimme 5" summary togetherI had given them handouts similar to the chart paper pictured, and they recorded the details on the hand while I was reading. When I was done the chapter, groups created a Gimme 5 summary on chart paper.

Love this idea :) -- "The incredible shrinking notes" Students start out writing a summary of their reading on the large index card. They are then given a medium sized card and have to take the info from the large card and condense it. By the time students get to the small index card they're getting to the main point/idea of the reading selection.

Book in a day. This reminds me of something my mom used before we went to school (and when we did our three years of homeschool). This is a great idea to get kids to retain morals of stories and to excite them about reading! Check out the blog this is from as well...super neat.

I modeled this one after the retell chart. My kids are summarizing every couple pages during buddy reading.
