Take note of this series of steps especially designed to reduce long texts to much more useful and simple annotations, which will allow you to remember the contents more easily.


1. Read the text carefully. In a first approximation to the content, you should look for children to understand what they are reading, without needing to underline or take notes.

2. Identify what the main topic is. The question is: what is the text about? The answer must be short, that is, it condenses the essence of the text into a single statement.

3. Record the main and secondary ideas. After reading and understanding the information, highlight the key points of each paragraph and classify them according to their importance.

4. Find the relationship between them. Is it possible to relate some ideas with others? This will allow to synthesize the content and unify the story.


5. Write a draft or mental map. Group the data and arrange them so that you can identify all the parties with a single glance.

6. Read it and see what it means. Remember to always use short phrases and use your own words.

7. Pass it to clean. Once reviewed, take a blank page and, with good handwriting, rewrite the summary or outline.

With these simple steps, we will enhance the learning of children, in addition to helping them improve their performance in class, since, using this type of tools, involves understanding and processing what they want to learn.
