    "the incredible shrinking notes" where students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must then take the information from the medium sized card and condense it down either further onto the small card. Found on The Middle School Mouth blog.

I love this idea to help students summarize the main points of a story. This would be great if I read a book related to the Constitution and had each student complete these notes. Next, I could have student take off the small sticky note and post them on a big sticky note and display them in the classroom. We could review everyone's main ideas as a class.

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.
