Main Idea and Author's Purpose are both hard concepts, and often go hand-in-hand. The consistent practice and exposure is key to helping our young readers understand and really apply this concept.
In this product you will find:
- 20 task card passages, spring-themed (all expository)
- 4 graphic organizers to help your young readers investigate and record main idea
- 20 main idea questions (asked in a variety of ways)
- 20 author's purpose, text structure, and/or vocabulary questions, asked in a variety of ways
Each card and its accompanying questioning card is numbered for easy referencing. You may wish to use the multiple choice questions, or just the graphic organizers, depending on the type of lesson. These cards are perfect for small groups, centers, or intervention. The cards are all infused with a bit of challenging vocabulary, intended to enrich the lessons.
