This lesson plan combines art with reading and writing to help student better connect to the topic. By having my students look at a picture first, it allowed them to get into the right mode to search for main ideas and supporting details in text.
This lesson includes:
How to use the texts
”What’s the Main Idea?” worksheet
Two Brothers by Leo Tolstoy*
All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury*
“Finding the Main Idea and Supporting Details” worksheet
*I found each of these stories online. I typed the story title and "pdf" at the end.
Please feel free to adapt this however you need to for your student! Have fun!
