**Product Update** This pack now includes Main Idea Chips and Salsa Craftivity to use anytime throughout the year in addition to the Cinco de Mayo Main Idea Chips and Salsa Craftivity!
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! I love using cute themed book craftivities to capture my students' interest and enhance their reading comprehension throughout each season! This cute main idea craftivity can be used with any book! After reading a story or nonfiction text, students will determine the main topic, main idea, and three details from the story. For students using more advanced text, you may want them to use this activity with a paragraph from the text instead of the entire text. Students will write the topic on the salsa jar. They will then write the main idea and three details on each tortilla chip. Glue the sides and bottom of the chip bowl. Do not glue the middle of the bowl. Once all of the chips are finished, cut them out and glue them inside the top part of the bowl so you can see what they wrote. Glue the salsa jar to the front of the chip bowl. My class had such a fun time making this activity and it looks so cute hanging in the hallway just in time for Cinco de Mayo!
***This craftivity is included in my Spring and Easter Themed Reading Comprehension Activities to use with Any Book pack. (Cinco de Mayo version only)
