PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Main Idea can be tricky for some kids! I used these sheets for morning work and had my kids confident about knowing what the main idea of a story was.

Main Idea Mega Bundle Save $7!

***Common Core Standards***
RI.K.2. With prompting and support, identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.

RI.1.2. Identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.


Students will read a short passage and should highlight or underline any supporting details.

*6 New Pages Added! 3.11.14*

There are 25 different stories and there are two worksheets for each story. One is multiple choice and the other is free response.

I gave my students the multiple choice worksheets first and then after they were confident about finding the main idea themselves, I gave them the free response sheets. They read the passage on their own and wrote down what they thought the main idea was.

This download also includes worksheets that tell the students 3 supporting details and the students must determine the main idea.

Includes 3 main idea and details graphic organizers for stories.


Please rate my work! :) Thank you!

I love how quick these are. Although the reading level is too hard for my students to read themselves, it is a great resource for practicing main idea as a whole group.

Hi Naomi, I just bought your main idea packet. It looks like it will be great practice for my second graders. Sometimes it's a difficult concept for some of them. Could you check p. 18, 19 and 20 to see if hear is supposed to be heard? P. 36 has the sentence Cool elephants are the circus. that I was wondering about, too. Thanks for your your hard work and great products!
