Each of these cards is meant to help students learn and practice cause and effect. The 54 (27 - to be printed front to back) cards are split into three groups of 9 - differentiated by beginner, intermediate and advanced. Level one is very basic, nine cards give a short description or story, while 9 matching cards (to be printed or glued front to back) give three multiple choice answers for main idea. Level two provides more of a challenge, asking students to identify main idea without multiple choice - but with a given hint. Level three is meant for students who already understand main ideat, but need more individual practice. These cards provide more detailed paragraphs. Students are expected to pull out the main idea completely on their own.
Also in this set:
*A classroom poster to help students understand main idea.
* Answer recording sheets for each task level.
* Directions for each level
* Common core standards for grades 1-7
