Summarizing Mini-Lesson

Cost:  $1.00

This PowerPoint summarizes the book, The Kid Who Ran For President, by Dan Gutman. First, a graphic organizer summarizes the who, what, when, where, and why of the story. Then, there's a paragraph summarizing it. Finally, there are four examples of 20 word summaries written by fourth graders. You could use this to model how to summarize with your class even if you haven't read this book.
