Product Description
Thanks for viewing this product! This product includes 16 short, nonfiction passages with questions that focus around the main idea skill. The questions range from directly asking what the main idea is, to having students dig a little deeper and examine best titles for passages, which detail from the passage best supports the main idea, or consequently, which detail does not support the given main idea.

There are really three ways you can use these cards:
*The cards are set up in an interactive way that allow students to check their answers for instant feedback without recording anything. If this is the way you’d like your students to use the cards, please print out p. 12 for the student directions.

*However, I also included a recording sheet (with answer key), because I want my students to be accountable for the work they were able to produce during rotation time. I still like to look over my students’ work to assess if a skill needs to be reviewed the following day. If this is the way you’d like your students to use the cards, please print out p. 11 for student directions.

*Additionally, if you would like to use these passages as strictly task cards (without the POKE idea), I included a separate recording sheet on page 15.

Directions for teachers on how to setup POKE:
*Print, laminate, and cut the cards.
*Hole-punch the middle of the 3 identical images (stars) on each card.
*Take a sharpie (use a light color, otherwise the students will be able to see through the card) and circle the hole that matches the correct answer on the BACK of the card.
