This is a fantastic Product because it is a bundle meaning: YOU GET 2 RESOURCES FOR A DISCOUNTED PRICE!
Both of these resources are a great way to teach and reteach Main Idea with a fun holiday twist on them. The unit is great to teach main idea and the activity/craft is a great resource to put the skill into practice while also having fun! Below you will find information about both products.
Christmas Main Idea Activities:
This is the perfect activity to practice identifying main idea and supporting details for this holiday season. There are three different options for you or your students to choose to create. Your students will use the passage included to find main idea and supporting details. Students will love this activity. They first read a passage all about Christmas traditions. In the passage they highlight the main idea and supporting details within the passage using 2 different colors. Once they have read, highlighted, and discussed the article, they create either a tree, a wreath or a stocking, where they will label the main idea and details.. These are great to showcase on a bulletin board!
Christmas Main Idea Unit:
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.
