Product Description

**UPDATED - I went back and included a lesson plan. I also separated the student printables, lesson plan, and the mini-lesson which is in PPT. Hope this helps! **

*Nonfiction Reading passages (articles) that celebrate Black History Month icons such as Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Bessie Coleman, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Jan Ernst Matzeliger, etc.

I do EVERYTHING for your Main Idea lesson in this Power Point. I include your printables and answer keys that I used in class.

I created this Main Idea Power Point to help me teach my students how to locate KEY supporting details. Once they are able to do this, then I have them analyze the key details to come up with a main idea leading them to summarize the reading passage. I have always taught main idea backwards (starting with the key details) and have had great success with this strategy.

I broke this Power Point up into (5) days. In this PPT you receive 86 slides that you can use with your students. I included a slide for the following:

- Common Core Standard

- Vocabulary Words

- Essential Question

- I Can Statement (one for each day)

- (4) Reading Passages for Interactive Notebooks (Reader's Notebook)

- (2) Graphic Organizers with an Answer Key for each

- (4) Formative Assessments - start with the Stevie Wonder Assessment

Day 1 - I can determine key supporting details within an informational text.

I Do, We Do, You Do slides showing students how to analyze a passage and highlight key details.

Day 2 - I can determine the main idea of an informational text by using key supporting details.

I Do, We Do, You Do, using the highlighted key details from the day before and creating a main idea to go with those same passages.

Day 3 - I can use a graphic organizer, along with key details, to help me determine the main idea.

I Do, We Do, You Do, with (2) new passages showing students how to locate key details and a main idea using a graphic organizer.

Day 4 - I can summarize the text by determining the main idea of a text, recount key details, and explain how they support the main idea.

I Do, We Do, You Do, using the same strategies listed above to help locate the summary using a graphic organizer.

Day 5 - I can assess my understanding of determining the main idea of a text by recounting key details while summarizing the text.

You Do using the summative assessment in my resource packet or one of your own.

Included in this packet is a short formative assessment where you can track the student's growth on this objective. I do this daily after I teach my lesson. This helps me to quickly see who needs a quick reteach. If you are not currently tracking data, check out these binder pages I created to help you track your students in their comprehension. I have seen tremendous growth since tracking EVERYTHING my students do - including keeping track of these formative assessments before giving a summative assessment.

I hope you find this Power Point useful. These help me to stay focused and on track while teaching and refer daily to the Essential Question and I Can Statement because it's in the slide.

Please let me know if you have any questions and make sure to check out these other Power Points I have created similar to this one...
