Have you ever envied the math teachers that get to do all of the fun hands-on lessons? I know I have! Being departmentalized, I always miss the hands-on experiences from Math and Science.
I am bringing Hand-On Reading (Main Idea) to you!
-THREE levels of task card passages. (2nd, 3rd, and 4th)
-Instructions for the students.
-Instructions and pictures for the teacher.
-Rubric included on the task card for easy assessment of mastery.
What is Hands-On Main Idea?
A Main Idea lesson that will allow students to read a passage, construct a graphic organizer with their hands and some simple supplies, then complete their graphic organizer.
-Pass out a reading task card to each student. Cards are differentiated in three different levels. Level=Grade Level.
-Pass out a bag with the Graphic Organizer Supplies to each student.
--4 Large Popsicle Sticks
--Painter’s or Washi Tape
--1 Pipe Cleaner (cut into three pieces)
-Each student will read the task card.
-Students will look at the BUILD YOUR GRAPHIC ORGANIZER card and construct their graphic organizer.
-Students will write the main idea and details on the sticks.
-The teacher will check the graphic organizer using the rubric on the task card.
-Students will peel the tape off and place the supplies back in the bag.
NOTE: By using washi tape or painter’s tape over the popsicle sticks, you can reuse them for each group you have or even the next year. Just peel the tape off!
All supplies are reusable so you are not wasting the supplies. The kids will be highly engaged and will love working with their hands. Building the graphic organizers also makes the graphic organizer more meaningful to the students.
