This is a sheet that has two nonfiction paragraphs about pets and summer. Students are to read the paragraphs, give each paragraph a title, underline the topic sentence in red, and the supporting details in blue.
The first paragraph's topic sentence is the second sentence, and the second paragraph's topic sentence is the last sentence.
I have used this as practice and assessment in my classroom. It can also be used in small groups. Students can discuss their choices and tell why.
Practicing main idea and supporting details is a must for second graders. This can be used at any time throughout the year.
I hope you find this helpful. Enjoy!
