Summarizing & Understanding Texts

Summarizing & Understanding Texts

When your child is done reading a chapter or a short book, ask them to summarize the story or chapter. Having your child summarize the reading can be hard for them because it asks them to choose only the most important ideas in the story and leave out some details or facts, even if they are really interesting. But, summarizing is great practice for them because they can share what they learned and practice sharing their ideas aloud.
Asking your students to summarize the text they read is a great way to assess their understanding of the main ideas and topics throughout the passage. The details students include or omit in their summaries can tell you about how much they understand the text.

The Writing Process: Editing

When your child finishes a writing piece in his homework, have them edit it by mark misspelled words, grammar mistakes, and other elements they'd like to change.
