These sheets are designed to use for teaching and practicing identifying both the main idea and supporting details of short passages. The 3 included graphic organizer options help scaffold students as they learn how to determine what a writing selection is mostly about, a critical reading comprehension skill. The packet includes the following:
•Pages 4-9: 6 short reading passages (3 nonfiction / 3 fiction)
•Pages 10-11: 2 Anchor Charts to teach a visual way to think about main idea and supporting details – I recommend laminating these for repeated use in therapy sessions, or placing on the wall.
•Pages 12-14: 3 Graphic Organizers to support identifying the main idea and supporting details of writing passages. Each sheet also includes a bonus “Title that Passage” space. These graphic organizers can be used for any writing selection you choose, in addition to the 6 included here.
•Pages 15-16: 2 Sample Answer Keys for possible ways that students may complete the included graphic organizers.
I hope it is a great resource for your speech room!
