I really need help in understand what I read. Everyday we have to summarize a chapter in a book. Well I do read the chapter but I always find myself writing 2 sentences out of the chapter for my summary. My grades are not good in reading and I want to know if you can help bring up my grade by breaking down for me on how to write a summary correctly. I am in the 5th grade. Please if you know any sites that can really break it down for me,let me know! thank you

    Someone will help you soon, so check back. But this is a critical problem, and your school has reading specialists, I am certain. I suggest an urgent meeting between your parents and the principal immediately. The principal has the means to get the appropriate attenion on this.

    Use your fingers to follow along with the words your reading I know this sounds silly, but it keeps you focused on what your reading, and you stay there instead of thinking of something else.

    Also after you read a paragraph or a page, take out a notecard and write down in one sentence what the important thing was about that paragraph/page. Within 30 pages of reading you have 30 sentences and you have summarized those 30 pages.

    Hope this helps!

    All I can say is to just take your time, ask the teachers for help don't be shy. I'm in 8th grade and I have the same problem like you. You're not the only one. Read through it again, I know its frustrating and annoying, but the teachers are there for you. Don't be shy to ask(: they are there for a reason.
