Main Idea Reading Passages: {20 Different Reading Passages}


Many students are able to read, but all students need practice when it comes to reading comprehension. Do they really know what they are reading about? Main Idea is a difficult concept for most little learners to grasp. These reading passages will help your students to understand how to find the main idea and supporting details. Each of the 20 reading passage comes with five comprehension questions. One of them will ask for the main idea, and one will ask for one supporting detail to support the main idea. The other three questions will focus on different reading compression questions. (Inference, setting, non-fiction vs. fiction, character trait, details from the passage, and so on)


Your students will read each reading passage three times for comprehension. Each time, they will color in a star! They will answer each of the five questions given, but they will also prove how they found their answer by highlighting or coloring where they found their answer. Each question they will highlight where they found it in a different color. Check out the example given! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. These passages were made with first and second graders in mind.
