Remember that when you summarize, you just stick to the "heart" of the matter.  You break down larger ideas into smaller chunks.  A summary is written in your own words and conveys the main idea of the text.

In class we learned that we can use a graphic organizer using the words: Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then to help us write our summaries.  Graphic organizers are GREAT learning tools!  We should use them in all of our writing!

Here is a short video clip on summarizing.  Enjoy!  Oh, and before I forget. . .CLICK HERE to listen to the summarizing song.
