    I am getting observed next week during my reading small groups. I would like to do a hands-on activity focusing on summarizing. In third grade, we have them pick out the main idea and details of the story. We are going to read our leveled reader and then do a summarizing activity. I like games, sorts or something that the students enjoy doing, but are still learning. Does anyone have any idea on what I can do? Thanks in advance!

    I found that having students make comic strips of the main events of the story was a good way to assess their summarizing.
