This 22 page file contains the materials that truly helped my first graders get a MUCH more solid hold on main idea and supporting details!! We did main idea bags (as many have done on pinterest) but I added sentence strips to mine to add to the rigor of what was being asked. For images I personally used scrapbook stickers from Michael's craft store....they were quick, easy and beautiful (and already in themed sets!!). Included here are pix, descriptions and the sentence strips/headers for posters. We also did a fiction/nonfiction study of main idea and supporting details using the common theme of trees. The books we used were Our Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel (GREAT story!!) and Be a Friend to Trees by Patricia Lauber. Using these books we created a lapbook/file folder showing what we learned. Included also are a fact/opinion sort on trees and a long e (ee/ea sort). Hope you have as much fun with this as we did!!!
