20 MAIN IDEA TASK CARDS
Instead of lengthy, time consuming, and boring passages, students can use these 20 short passages to practice writing main idea.
There are two different answer sheets so that you can differentiate between the easier multiple choice and the more difficult free response. Students can also use lined or notebook paper to answer these questions.
The ANSWER KEY is applicable to both answer sheets so that students can check their own work. Since main idea is subjective, the answers on the free response answer key are suggestions, but your students may come up with different variations.
These cards can be used for mini lessons, guided practice or independent practice.
