About the Materials

These task cards are a great addition to any reading curriculum. This unit contains 32 Main Idea and Detail Task Cards, 2 different style answer sheets with keys, and a final assessment in multiple choice format. The task cards are great way to enhance performance and understanding of main idea and details. The task cards can be used for centers, pair and share activities, and for remedial reading activities for grades 2-3. Many topics are familiar, helping students to more easily grasp the content and identify the main idea and details which support the main idea.

Creative teachers can also use them to construct hands-on bulletin board activities, game cards for board games, and as extension activities for early finishers. They are a great addition to any general education, special education, and ESL/ELL class. Students in summer school or extended school year programs would benefit from their use. There are two sets of 16 task cards. The first set only has the students identify the main idea in the story. Set 2 is more challenging and requires the student to identify both main idea and a detail from the story.
