Did you LOVE my New Year’s Summarizing Card Game FREEBIE?!
I know my students did SO well with it that I wanted to create a follow up activity to continue to practice using “somebody-wanted-but-so-then” to summarize. My students are learning to identify when stories have a problem and a solution they can use this strategy to retell a story!
Students can take turn picking a card from the pile. They can read it or you can read it to them (depending on their reading levels or if you wanted to make it a complete auditory comprehension practice activity).
Once students read or listens to the card, they can use the summarizing visual to retell it!
If a student picks the “bonus turn” card, they can take an extra turn. Once all of the cards are used, the students can add up their cards to determine the winner. I am so surprised how into these games my students get! They love competing! I keep their “score” with their data on my data sheet. They love to check to see how they doing with the game and how many right they are getting. I love that they want to improve and better themselves!
Once the game is complete, you can use the included review worksheet to practice further. You can also use this as a home practice sheet as well. Students can read the passage and write their answers next to the corresponding place on the graphic organizer.
I love having similar activities over and over with different stimuli and themes so I can easily see progress. My students love these activities and are showing such growth! You can grab this game for yourself by visiting my TpT store by clicking HERE!
