Product Description
*Now Includes Answer Key!*

This download includes 16 task cards that require students to identify the main idea of a non-fiction paragraph. Paragraphs are written at approximately a 4th grade reading level, but are good for use with older students who may need a review. The paragraphs cover a variety of topics.

I use these cards as independent work for my advanced readers and in small guided reading groups for the readers who need more support. You may wish to put constraints on what students are allowed to write as a main idea (I've found about 15 words/1 sentence works well), otherwise some may go on and on while others write a single word.

If you download and/or use these, please let me know what you think!
