I know, I know: it isn’t even Thanksgiving, and here I am talking about the holiday season already. But I wanted to post about this set of free Winter Holiday Summarizing Task Cards now because I am really excited about them and also so that you can download them now and have them printed, cut, and laminated to use when you get back from the break.
I made this set of task cards free as a kind of holiday gift because I so very much appreciate all of you and the amazing work you do. I chose to do summarizing because:
- Summarizing is an important and challenging skill.
- Summarizing shows up in several Common Core Standards.
- I could use both informational text and fictional paragraphs (there are ten of each).
- My previous set of Summarize It! Task Cards is one of my best sellers.
Here is the first page, so you can see for yourself (or just download them…they are free!)
