Students will use observation(s) of details in each picture to summarize the main idea. In addition, they will choose a fitting title for each picture. There are 40 main idea activities for students to complete weekly throughout the year. Each page is numbered.
1. Give your students one main idea activity per week to reinforce this skill all year long!
2. When you give your students a copy of the weekly main idea activity, drag the activity from your computer onto the board (SmartBoard, etc) so that students can see the picture(s) larger, more clearly, and in color.
3. When students have had time to complete the activity, ask volunteers to come up to the board and fill in details, appropriate titles, and summaries. Alternatively, have a class discussion and fill in student responses yourself. This resource could be used as a Warm-up or Bell Ringer!
