We are using two strategies to do this. First, we are using the traditional 5Ws (and an H). Students read a chapter, then record: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How.
Here is a freebie: two posters and several graphic organizers!
The second strategy is called a Summary Poem. Students must choose and list 7-10 of the MOST important words from the chapter. Then then WEAVE those words into sentences, trying to stay specific without retelling. I will take some pictures of this strategy next week to post!
