We read this story this week and tried a different summarizing strategy. Students used the cooperative Mix Freeze strategy to listening and share ideas with others. We wrote the main idea of the story and listed important words from the text to help us before writing a short summary. Students found this challenging since many wanted to retell the entire story.
Please listen to the story with your family and try to write your own summary by stating a one sentence main idea and listing 6 important words from the story. Your summary should not be more than 3 or 4 sentences. Good luck!
