PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this product to use in my split 1st/2nd grade classroom when teaching main idea (CCSS RI.1.2 Identify the main topic and retell key details of a text and CCSS RI.2.2 Identify the main topic of a multi paragraph text as well as the focus of specific paragraphs within the text.)

Included in this Main Idea pack:
- Main idea anchor chart (color & black/white)
- Main idea mystery bags activity: put clues into a TOP SECRET mystery bag or envelope, and students use the clues to figure out the main idea (color & black/white available)
- Sentence Strips: cut apart sentence strips and have students put them into a paragraph where the main idea is listed first... You can also make this into a race between groups or tables of students!
- Reading Passages: four one paragraph passages with differentiated options for writing main idea and details (Option 1: cut and paste. Option 2: write it out.)
- Lesson ideas & Organizers to go with The Important Book mentor text
- Seven Graphic Organizers: different organizers to work on main idea and supporting details (4 various flip flap books)
