What educators are saying

This is just what I had been looking for - something low prep for me. This was exactly what I needed! Thank you for sharing! It saved me a LOT of prep time and made my job more manageable.
I LOVE engaging anchor charts and I'm not as creative as I wish I was when it came to putting one together without help- so this one was definitely added to my cart!


Are you teaching Main Idea and Details? Looking for a visual to display Main Idea in your classroom? Want a low prep anchor chart? Look no further!

Why Use Anchor Charts?

Anchor Charts can be used to teach concepts and then be displayed to review skills. Students have a reference point. They involve students during the creation process and they are much more ENGAGED in lesson because they have input in the creation of them! The anchor charts can be displayed in the classroom and students can refer back to them when working on their own.

This resource can be used year after year.

What is included?

  • The Anchor Chart pieces. Just cut the pieces and glue them onto Anchor Chart paper. Then laminate the Anchor chart.
  • Pieces - Main Idea Title, Question, Pizza, etc EVERYTHING needed to make this Anchor Chart!
  • 6/20/19 - Added a couple of the headings to "look for common ideas," "look for related ideas," and "look in the middle of the paragraph"
