Product Description
This choice board product contains nine activities that will help you understand whether or not your students know how to identify and write with main ideas and details in nonfiction text.

The choice board allows students to pick activities that they prefer, while still making sure that they choose activities related to main ideas and details. The choice board contains activities that require students to identify main ideas, details, and also write using main ideas and details. If students choose three in a row (not diagonally) on the choice board, they will have to do one activity focused on main ideas, details, and writing.

Also included is an assessment checklist so that you can monitor students' abilities. The product is not meant to teach students the basics of identifying main ideas and details in nonfiction - you will teach them about that - and then they will show their abilities through these activities.

If you do not want to use this as a choice board, no worries. Simply use the nine activities whichever way you choose.

Each activity contains a worksheet page and everything your students need is included. Place the activities in an open top file box or file folder and let them pull out the activities themselves once they've chosen what they would like to do on the choice board.

This product meets CCSS.RI.4.2 and 5.2. It also meets CCSS.RI.3.2, however, third grade students may need some assistance with some activities in the packet unless they are a high-level class.
