What a resource this has been! When I created this, I was looking to construct something that would help my students come up with the Main Idea of a story.....a concept they have struggled with. This has worked wonders. You can put these at a center or even buy a trifold board (like I did) and place the items in envelopes attached to a board (I covered mine in fabric and attached the envelopes with the items in it with brads). I believe this is a great resource for those who are struggling with main idea.
