Main Idea is such a hard concept for teachers to get students to understand, but it plays such a huge role in the Common Core Standards and the Language Arts Florida Standards. When students understand what Main Idea is, it makes a huge difference in their comprehension of the text. Understanding the main idea of a text and the details to support it has a great impact on a student's comprehension of the text. This is perfect for 3rd and 4th-grade students but could be used as a great review in 5th Grade.
