Main idea passages are a great way to teach and reinforce main idea lessons in your classroom. This resource includes 20 spring themed passages for students to recognize the main idea within a short, simple text. Comprehension questions are included as well. Comprehension questions include two response questions: What is the main idea? and What was one supporting detail? and one multiple choice question: What are other supporting details in the text?

Main idea can be a difficult concept to teach to the primary grades, but recognizing them within a short text can make it easier to teach and for your students to understand!
