These classroom periodical report forms and the accompanying CCSS aligned rubric (RI1.2) may be used as a teaching tool for main idea and details of non fiction text or as an assessment. The rubric is aligned to RI1.2 (first grade), but the forms can be used for grades 1-3.
When I teach this…
“I learned about…” - this is the main idea sentence.
“I learned that…” - is the supporting detail sentence. At the beginning of the year I ask for 1 sentence. As the year progresses I ask students to add another sentence.
Included are two versions (line size and illustration box differs in size) for: Time For Kids report, Scholastic News report, & National Geographic Kids report.
