Erasing the Extras

Readers practice the strategy of summarization to understand text better. They assess how to delete trivial information and summarize important information found in text. They study summarizing and deleting trivial information from the sentence, "Charles was walking to school in the rain, on Friday, when he dropped his green folder in the grass." Great practice, but not a lot of detail to the activity.

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
