Summarizing

The student summarizes (retell) the main idea of what he/she has read. They should be able to read any texts and write or orally tell someone the main idea. Remind students that while giving a summary, no one can afford to retell the entire story -- we must only tell the important parts as long as anyone is able to understand what has happened.

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
