**Aligned to CCSS**
This 10 page practice pack was created to address the nonfiction standard "identify the main topic and retell key details of the text." There are ten separate nonfiction paragraphs centering around spring: planting a garden, farming in the spring, bees, butterflies, baby animals, etc. These paragraphs (on average) are written on a second to third grade level, but can be used in first (with support) and fourth (as review) as well.
After reading each paragraph, students are asked to identify the main idea by making a multiple choice selection, then supplying three details from the text that support this main idea (writing lines provided).
They can be used whole group, small group/partner, or individually for practice or assessment of this standard.
