PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Main Idea:
This product is a response to both the Common Core standards for Key Ideas in grades K-3, and New York State's more rigorous test questions concerning main idea.

In May 2013, the only way to earn full credit was to include a clearly written main idea statement that included two text based pieces of supporting evidence, and a statement that included inference. In other words, third graders had to state what they learned based on what the text implied, not solely what the text directly stated.

I developed this product to help teachers and students make the shift from previous NYS performance indicators, to the current Common Core.

Here are some of the components:
-Explanation and summary of Common Core standards for Key Ideas K-3
-Samples of 2 and 1 point written responses using informational text.
-A practice informational text and main idea short response question.
-Main Idea poster with checklist for writing short responses.
-Main Idea graphic organizer that includes emphasis on inference.
-Main Idea printables for students to practice with during reader's workshop or Read to Self (Daily 5).

As with all of my products, your feedback is greatly appreciated. My hope is that this will prove highly useful to you as we all try to wrap our minds around new NYS assessments.
