FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “FREE! Summarizing Fiction and Non-Fiction Poster Set”

by The Niemans' Nook
2nd - 5th Grade

Summarizing, Teaching Summary, Getting the Gist

This poster set is meant to help readers form more accurate and organized summaries of fiction and non-fiction text. Why is that important? Summarizing challenges readers to focus on the big picture, paraphrase the author's words, and determine which events are the most important to the overall theme of the book. Readers will have a formula for sequentially summarizing literature, and creating a text-based gist for informational text. Hope this proves useful!

What's Included:
*Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then Posters (Color and BW)
*SWBST student graphic organizer to utilize after reading
*Get The Gist Posters (Color and BW)
*Get the Gist student graphic organizer to utilize after reading
