This set of no-prep activities is designed to give first graders practice reading a short passage, answering text-based questions, and finding the main idea.
There are 8 sets of worksheets in this pack:
- The first page of each set features a short story or informational passage. Students will read the passage and then use the text to answer three comprehension questions.
- The second page is a cut-and-paste graphic organizer. Students cut out three statements from the text and glue them onto the graphic organizer to show which is the main idea and which are the details.
- Each set also includes answer keys.
While these activities are designed to help teach main idea, they let your students practice reading grade-appropriate text and finding answers in the text. When answering the comprehension questions, I like to have my students highlight where they found the answers (as pictured on the cover). This shows me that they referred back to the text to find the information.
These work well as homework, in literacy centers, or even for assessment.
