Here is one week's worth of handouts to supplement your instruction on Main Idea and Details. This pack explores the importance of main idea as it relates to asking and answering questions like Who, What, When, Where, Why and How as stated in the Common Core State Standards. The handouts will also provide practice in determining the moral of a fable in both 2nd & 3rd grade.
These handouts can be used to guide your whole or small group instruction. This Main Idea and Details pack can also be used for independent seatwork while you work in guided reading groups or as an assessment to check students' understanding of Main Idea and Details.

-The Tortoise and the Hare
