Writing Summaries Craftivity
The Owl Spot
Add to Cart
Writing Summaries Craftivity is a great hands on, creative way for your students to work on their summarizing skills. Included in this activity are 5 different non-fiction reading passages, anchor charts for using MIWs (Most Important Words) and for writing summaries, and a fun and easy craftivity for your students to make with their summaries.
Product Description

Reading passage topics included are:
1. Origination of bubble gum (included on the anchor chart – MIWs are chosen, so this could be a great way to write a summary together as a class)
2. How clouds help predict the weather
3. Frogs
4. Comparing baleen and toothed whales
5. Dolphins

Students will write their summaries on fun lemonade glasses 
and add a wedge to the rims with their MIWs. Some students 
may wish to make the lemon a lime, or color the glasses as iced 
tea instead of lemonade. These craftivities make a great bulletin 
board, hallway display or interactive journal addition. Lemonade 
glasses come in 2 sizes – whole page or half page – for you to use. 
And to make this “easy squeezy” for you, I’ve included a rubric to 
help you score your students’ summaries (rubric scores both 
content of summaries and mechanics) 

As always, happy teaching! - Martha from “The Owl Spot”

Hi! Thanks for dropping in!  I love what I do, and am so excited to share my products with you!  I have been teaching for 14 years, all in grades 1-5.  This year, I've had the unique opportunity to teach a section of 7th grade Reading Comprehension and English.  I was a bit unsure when I began, but absolutely love it now.  Let's see, I have my Master's degree in Elementary Education with a focus in reading, as well as my National Boards Certification in Middle Childhood Generalist.  I'm a teacher consultant with the National Writing Project.  My products all represent my perspective of education: engaging, rigorous and fun!
