This is a main idea and details activity that can stand alone or be used with any book. This was made with 2nd graders in mind, but could easily be used for 1st or 3rd graders also. Have the students color the shape or detail to match the main ideas in the box. Use the color code. These sheets can be used as a quick assessment for main idea and details. It could also be used for whole or small group instruction or a reading station. The students can work on this sheet independently with little or no help from me.
