Strategy 12: Summarising

In Week 5 we used a Story Wheel to help us practise summarising the story so that we could retell.  First we brainstormed all the events we could remember and looked at them to make sure we had them in the right sequence.  Then we needed to decide which were the 5 most important to us so that we would have enough to retell the story.  We wrote the title in one of the wedges of the wheel and filled the rest with illustrations that would help us remember.  It was hard to work out the most important events and sometimes we disagreed on what was important, but we all found ways to summarise the story.
