Summarizing text is a balancing act between being brief but thorough. You need to be short and to the point, but also cover all the important details, a task that presents a challenge for many young learners. In this lesson based on the story Piggybook by Anthony Browne, children work in pairs choosing five words that describe the book. These words are then used to create a single sentence stating the main idea of the story, leading into a discussion of the theme of the book.
