Product Description
Do your students have summer on the brain? This summer-themed main idea activity is perfect for your upper elementary students who need some extra practice! This resource is packed with a card game, a board game, reading passages, and visuals!

What awesome resources are included?
★ Visual to display while using activity
★ Card game with paragraph level passages
★ Board game
★ Review worksheet


How can you use this product?
★ There are two ways to play. Students must read or listen to the passages and express the main idea. When students respond accurately, they can hold onto their card. If they get a “bonus turn,” then they get an extra turn, and if they get a “lose a turn” card, then they lose a turn. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
★ Students can take a turn in the board game after they respond accurately with the main idea. You can even use the “bonus turn” and “lose a turn” cards with the board game, as well.

Many students struggle with reading comprehension strategies, such as man idea, due to their underlying language weaknesses (lexical and syntactical). SLPs can assist students by addressing these areas which will then assist them with their reading comprehension. (Nippold, 2017).
