Use this lesson to help students find the MAIN IDEA of a text by finding what words or phrases repeat throughout the text. This product uses a passage about Barbara Parks (included) and the comical books she’s written!
In this lesson students will…
**Learn the strategy
**Practicing using the strategy within a text
See a reference for how to practice this strategy using their independent reading books (on a post-it note)
**An anchor chart to leave up as a reference during independent work
These slides are editable so you may edit as needed to fit your classroom for personal use, however you may not distribute this work in anyway. I find that teaching my lessons digitally (instead of simply writing on an anchor chart) allows my students to be more engaged, and I can include fun photos, videos in order to enhance the lessons, and can save my lessons from year to year! Enjoy these slides and if you have any questions please feel free to send me a message through TpT!
