This unique product allows for you to teach three important skills

**Main Idea
**Key Details
**Story Retell

Found poems are poems in which the author "finds" their words within the text of another piece of writing. For this activity, students will create a found poem about the main idea of a story they read in class.

Using a writing piece chosen by you, the students will close read in order to find text evidence that supports the main idea of the story. After recording this text evidence word for word on a graphic organizer, the students will pick out only the key words that get across the main idea, leaving behind many smaller words like pronouns and conjunctions. Once key words are found, the students will format them in a creative way to create a succinct poem retelling the story and featuring the main idea of the passage they read.

Included in this pack are the following items:

* Ready to implement lesson plan
* Blank text evidence organizer
* Blank final copy sheet
* Sample organizer and final copy sheet filled out completely
* Teacher grading rubric
* Student self grading rubric
