This colorful main idea flipchart will engage your primary students in a gradual release formatted lesson. After the "I can" statement, connection to previous learning, and explanation of what we mean by "Main Idea" students are guided through the lesson with teacher modeling, class group work, partner work, and independent practice on simple paragraphs. Finally, the lesson ends with a student choice of writing prompt options.
