Teaching students to identify main idea and supporting details can be tricky. I have scaffolded this unit to gradually release the responsibility to your students with 23 engaging activities.
What is included?
*5 activities where the students are given the main idea and they must sort the relevant supporting details from the irrelevant ones.
*5 activities where the students must identify the main idea and the three supporting details.
*5 activities where the students are given 2 main ideas on similar topics and they must sort the 6 details they are given.
*8 reading passages where the students must highlight and record the main idea and three supporting details.
The best part is that this unit has NO PREP. Just photocopy and go! These activities are great for whole group lessons, centres, small groups, or homework.
Please have a look at the preview so that you can see everything that is included. I had tremendous success with my students and I know you will, too!
