The new core is heavy on writing. So this is a little non-fiction summary organizer I put together for my kiddos. I did it on one page and then after using with my firsties I realized some of them can't write all that small so I re-made it for a 2 pager that I print front to back. It seemed to work much better. My higher kids can use the 1 pager.
This is a good way to help students see the main idea of a nonfiction piece. It also helps them summarize a story so they can use this paper to reference the work later without searching the entire document again. Finally, it is a good way to show them that all good work has main points that are supported by details.
