These passages help students practice one of the most important skills out there- main idea and details! Each worksheet in this set has an engaging three-paragraph passage and response sections ON THE SAME PAGE!!! That means prep is super-simple and if you copy double-sided, you can have one for whole group and one for independent work ON ONE SHEET!!!
This mini-pack also includes flash cards to scaffold independent work, an answer key, and suggestions for use. Also, the four passages have a consistent format so they are great for assessing progress on this standard over the course of a week or even a month!
This mini-pack includes:
-Four worksheets, each with an original passage
about trees and plants
-Twenty-four flash cards to scaffold independent work
-Suggestions for use
Finally, please know that the main ideas in these passages are not directly stated in each paragraph. Rather, the reader must infer the main idea using the details (sometimes called implied main idea) which is more challenging but also more rigorous!
Thanks for looking and I hope you find you can use this product!
