Product Description
This product focuses on differenetiating details.

This product includes two activities and a quick assessment.

So many times my kiddos can identify the topic and the main idea- but they struggle with identifying the detail that SUPPORTS the main idea. I teach my kiddos that ALL details may be true about the topic BUT we are looking for the detail that supports the given main idea. There are 10 cards with a graphic organizer to record student's thinking.

This product also address identify a detail that does NOT support the main idea. Again, all details all true but not all support the main idea. Students must decide which detail is true of the topic but does NOT support the given main idea.

This product can be used as a game, review, or assessment. Just print each board and give each kiddo a chip or a clip. With a partner, let them decided which detail supports the main idea! Simple and easy practice.
