The students in Mrs. Ottinger’s class at summer school at Mary Bryan Elementary created Matchbox Summary Folders. Matchbox summary folders are a creative way to get children interested in what they have read by retelling the story in their own words and in small chunks as well as drawing pictures to express the chapters. These students did a lot of work this week on reading the text, writing, and drawing their summaries. Their folders look great!
