Friday Freebie

We are linking up with TBA for their:

I shared these yesterday but in case you didn't get to see them:

These are the Nonfiction Summarizing Graphic Organizers we used when we did our Who is Neil Armstrong? book study (you can find the link to that unit here).  For each chapter, we were working on summarizing. I did NOT make them summarize each chapter because that would have killed the book, but we did do it with 3 of them since that skill is hard.  Since nonfiction has different elements, we had to think differently on how to summarize.

We did the top organizer first. Then we transferred that to the bottom one, writing in complete sentences.  From there, we created a paragraph for the chapter (yes, even in 4th grade we are still working on paragraphs.  Sigh).  I hope you find them helpful!  I know that these are simple, but sometimes simple is best!  Feel free to pin these on Pinterest if you like them!!  (I haven't figured out how to put that Pin it button on my pictures- if anyone wants to give a girl some help on that one, I'd really appreciate it!!)
