Product Description
Looking for a new way to practice the same old skill of finding the main idea? Try doing it with this packet and NEWSPAPERS! These three activities are the perfect way to reinforce the skill, while reading about current events and local news.

It Needs a Title:
Students read 5-15 articles with missing titles. As they read, they record their own titles on the recording sheet provided.

Can You Find the Title:
Using the same 5-15 articles or a variety of new articles, students practice matching the correct article with the title.

Class Articles:
This can be used as a whole group, small group, or independent activity, depending on your needs. In this activity, students begin with a blank temple in which they take turns completing based on the main idea to develop an article about a topic of their choice.
