Whoooo Can Summarize?

I love to use bookmarks with my children during Daily Five!  I have been focusing on various strategies for comprehension.  The past few weeks the strategy has been summarizing.  Here are my bookmarks that I created today! I printed them out on colored card stock and added some bright ribbon.

The children will write a summary in their weekly letters  to me about their reading using the key words from their bookmark.  (see my Book Whisperer Post for more information about letters) I change the focus of their letters to match the skill we are working on.
