Product Description
Identifying the main idea in a story is an important skill. This presentation is designed to be your lesson to teach your students how to identify the main idea in a story. The lesson contains 24 slides, as well as an exit slip that will allow your students to practice identifying the main idea in whatever story they are reading independently.

The presentation teaches students what the main idea is, and how to use the key details in the story to find the main idea. This presentation also contains the story "Little Red Hen". The presentation teaches students to use the key details in "Little Red Hen" to determine the main idea of the story. Students are also given the opportunity to determine the moral of the story as well.

Students may then use the exit slip provided to practice this skill with the reading of their choice.

This lesson also contains a link to a Google Slides version.
