PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Identifying the main idea and details within a fiction or non-fiction selection is such a difficult skill for kids, which is why we practice it all year round! Here is a spoon-ful of sugar to hopefully help the main idea go down. Use the eight original story cards in a center, small group, or a whole class “I spy” activity. My kids love the I spy version. I hide the cards all over the room, break students up into groups of three, and have them “hunt” for the story cards. After they have found them, they read the story and then identify the main idea and details on their recording sheet. After all students are finished, we review the answers in a whole group setting. Continue to study main idea and detail using your favorite spring time stories or texts from your basal reader. After reading, have students use the graphic organizers to record the main idea and detail. Finally, make a dragonfly main idea/detail craftivity to add a little “spring” to your classroom! I post these little guys on a bulletin board with a title, “Flying High with Main Idea and Detail!”
