This Main Idea Game will help your students master the tricky but very important reading skill of identifying the main idea, from other supporting details, while using a fun game format. The game format is engaging for students, but easy to prep and manage for the busy teacher. The game is an effective tool for centers, for one on one work, and for test prep.
Here’s what it includes:
32 Main Idea Task Cards
Two Game Boards (One in color and one in black and white)
Center Directions for Students (Includes an editable version too)
Detailed Teacher Notes
