A great download that will help your students understand finding the main idea that can be used as either a fun learning center that students can work on independently or as a great classroom activity that all students can participate in at once. Students look at high-interest photographs and come up with titles for each picture based upon what is happening in each shot. A great way to introduce main idea or practice previously introduced skills.
Download includes teacher's guide, learning center worksheet, classroom activity worksheet, and over 40 high-interest images to use with either the center or the classroom activity.
As always, if you are displeased with this product for any reason, please contact me so that I can make it right!
