Short and Sweet Story Summaries

Challenge your students to summarize famous children's stories in one sentence with Short & Sweet Story Summaries!

In this activity, students practice listening, comprehension, and summarizing skills as they imagine they're writing a TV program guide for CBS--the Children's Books Stories--network and must briefly describe what each program (story) is all about. Use it as a post-assessment for younger elementary students or a pre-assessment for older elementary students. Enjoy!
