Summarizing with Somebody-Wanted-But-So

    I have a great FREEBIE for you!!! This week I am going to be studying summarizing with my little ones!  It is a much needed review for some of my firsties, because I have noticed a few kiddos are having trouble differentiating between a retell and a summary.  We did a lot on retelling at the beginning of the school year, and I felt like when we started summarizing they didn't quite get that I didn't want a novel!!  :)  They just kept going on and on and on.... ahhhh!!  We talked about how a retell is the WHOLE story from beginning to end with ALL the details, but a summary is just a brief overview of the main events.  This week I am going to be using the "Somebody-Wanted-But-So" format to guide my little ones in summarizing.  Click below to get this SWBS packet with posters, response sheets, and more for FREE at my TPT store!  Happy Summarizing!
