This main idea lesson is one of our class favorites! It goes with the book Four Feet, Two Sandals, by Karen Lynn Williams. Students learn the concept of Main Idea by packing their suitcase for a trip! They can work independently or in pairs to decide the important parts of the story. After they have these figured out, they can glue them onto pieces of cut-out clothing and pack their suitcases with the clothes. In 20 pages, this lesson includes: Directions on how to teach the lesson, pictures on what student suitcases look like, a cover for the suitcase, important and extra story parts in large teacher modeling size and small student size, and 8 pages of large cut-out clothes for students to pack their suitcase with. Please leave me feedback and let me know how this lesson goes in your classroom!
