This is the perfect holiday unit to practice main idea. This unit includes mini assessments where students identify the main idea and supporting details of the passage. In this unit there are also 20 task cards asking students to find the main idea, find the supporting details, to infer what the main idea is, what a supporting detail would be, etc. Also included are main idea game bags where students infer the main idea from pictures given. Another resource is a set of sentence strips where students have to identify which ones are main idea and which ones support the main ideas. My personal favorite are the main idea matching cards. Students are given 8 main idea cards and 16 supporting detail cards. They must match up the supporting detail cards to the main idea cards.
