Book Recommendations - Summarizing

     "Giant Pandas"Abraham Lincoln" (examples of kindergarten students summarizing a book)

The links are video recording of students summarizing a story.  The following is an idea for the lesson.

Step 1:  A book is read in the whole group.

Step 2:  The class discusses the book and participates in sequencing the book.

Step 3:  The discussion continues as the students talk about why they like the book and why they would recommend it to others.

Step 4:  Over time, each child will take a turn summarizing the book while being videotaped.

Note:  Students will take turns using the camera to video tape a classmate as they summarize the book.
