This main idea and details chart is great for helping students to determine the main idea by going through steps: looking at the cover, stopping in the middle, and then stopping at the end to think about what the book was mostly about. Then the back has a visual to help the students list 3 facts across their fingers. There are visuals for each part.
This is a great chart to print 2 sided and laminate and place in each child's reading folder. Then you can reuse it every year.
You can also put this on the smart board as a visual for all to see.
