Description

Use these cards to help your students to successfully master the challenging reading strategy of identifying the main idea in informational text (nonfiction).

48 Differentiated Task Cards- two sets of 24 cards

The short paragraphs on the first set begin with a clear topic sentence, which makes it easy to find the main idea. Use these cards for third-grade students and students in higher grades that require instructional adaptations.

The paragraphs on the second set are similar to the first, but do not have a topic sentence. Students are asked to infer the main idea. This challenging set is great for fourth grade and above.

Differentiated Answer Sheets

Choose between multiple choice or the more challenging start answer sheet that requires students to state the main idea. You can use either answer sheet with each set of cards. Students can check their work using the answer keys provided.
