Product Description
Distinguishing Main Idea and Details can be a tough idea to teach. Students often struggle with the abstract nature of this concept.

This PowerPoint presentation is designed to be a first introduction to main idea and supporting details. It starts by explaining how a good paragraph is constructed. Students then learn where within a paragraph to look for main idea and for details.

Once students know where to find them, the lesson seeks to teach what main idea and details are - what is their 'job' in a paragraph.

There are four slides with practice sentences. Students decide which sentences would be good main ideas, which would not, and why. Similarly, students have the opportunity to decide which sentences would be good supporting details.

I believe that this PowerPoint lesson will help your students understand this difficult concept. In addition, understanding how good paragraphs are built will help your students to navigate informational texts more readily.

I thank you for considering this lesson from kidRN.
