The Book Summary

Allie read Johnny Tremain as part of our Revolutionary War study. I had her do a written narration after each reading with the intent of having her condense her writings into a short book summary. You see, Allie has the gift of writing. She can write stories that go on and on, full of lively characters and vibrant details. However, when it comes to summarizing, she has trouble. She just doesn't like to leave anything out. We have been working on this skill and she has come a long way. I limited her summary of Johnny Tremain to one page and this is what she turned in to me.
