Summarizing with my firsties

Hi Yall,

This week my first graders focused on summarizing the text. I used the strategy Sombody. Wanted. But. So to help my firsties summarize the text. We read The True Story of The Three Little Pigs, and summarized the text on a postcard to share with our families. The postcards turned out super cute. I made several graphic organizers that we used out the week to help us compose a summary. I forgot to take pics of the postcards, but have included a postcard freebie for you click here. My first graders were excited to share the text with a family member. I also have those graphic organizers in my TPT store click here  to get yours. All sales will support summer reading books for my students. I work in a very low-income area, and I am raising funds to purchase books for my class to take home for the summer.
