Perfect graphic organizer for students that are learning or are struggling with identifying the main idea within a paragraph. The organizer has students work through the process backwards by first identifying details. Then, they look at the details and ask themselves, "What do these details all have in common?" From there, they are able to determine the main idea of the paragraph. Includes lines!
Students can also use this organizer during writing to make sure their paragraphs are focused.
Great for second through sixth grade.
