PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This pack was created to provide teachers a resource to explicitly teach main idea from definition to producing it in writing.

How Can I Use This?
When I wrote the pack, I envisioned teachers using this in small group instruction. Directions for assembling the book are included. Also included are five days of suggested lessons for using the flipbook with students. All materials for instruction are included. I tried to include a variety of levels for some of the pages of the flip book to allow for differentiation.

What Materials Are in This Pack?
Supplemental Materials included in this pack are

• Assembly directions for the flipbook
• Five days of suggested instruction
• 5 posters
• Blank graphic organizer
• Main idea and details sort (kittens)
• Informational paragraph checklist
• Informational passage about penguins that can be used as a formative assessment at the end.

What is in the Flip Book?
The flipbook includes 7 pages. The following concepts are included on each page

• Cover
• Define It- Students use the provided posters to define main idea and supporting details.
• Understand It- Students are given 4 tips for finding the main idea and practice identifying main idea and details.
• Try It- Two versions of this page are provided for differentiation. The content for the pages is the same, only the format is different. Students are given four main ideas and will match the appropriate detail to the main idea. This is either a cut and paste activity or multiple choice activity.
• Apply It- Students practice finding main idea within a nonfiction paragraph about giraffes’ necks. Two versions of this page are provided for differentiation. Students can simply underline the main idea and details in the paragraph or can complete a graphic organizer.
• Create It- This page explains how to organize informational writing with main idea and supporting details. Students will label a graphic organizer. Then, they will read about the purpose of transition words using the provided poster and fill in examples of transitions words in the blanks.
• Write It- Students will fill in the graphic organizer and then write an informational paragraph from the graphic organizer. A main idea/ supporting details sort is provided for students to complete and then copy into the graphic organizer if they are not able to produce ideas themselves yet. After students write, they will complete a checklist to make sure all the elements are included in their writing.
