Winter Summarizing Card Game

· ·

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!

Summarizing is such an essential skill for students to learn, but it can be boring for them. However, it doesn't have to be boring with my Winter Summarizing Card Game! Click through to read this post where I describe how I use this fun summarizing resource with my students!

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!
