    Mom summoned me.

    "My mom is in the kitchen and she shouts my name or calls me because she needs help."

    What would I say "My mom called me or summon me?"

    Re: Mom summoned me.

    'Called' is fine. 'Summoned' suggests you are in some form of trouble.

    Re: Mom summoned me.

    Note that you used "summoned" correctly in your title but in your post you incorrectly used the present tense/bare infinitive "summon" (even if you were using the present tense correctly, it should have been "summons​" after "My mother").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
