How can you use this product?

★ There are two ways to play. Print and laminate (or back on index cards, construction paper, or card stock).

★ Version 1: Students must pick a card and read/listen to the passage on the card. They must use their strategies for expressing the main idea. Once they respond accurately, they can hold onto their cards. If they pick a BONUS card, then they get an extra turn. If they pick a "lose a turn" card, then they lose a turn. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

★ Version 2: Students must pick a card and read/listen to the passage on the card. They must use their strategies for expressing the main idea. Once they respond accurately, they can hold onto their cards. There is a point value visual that has a point value for each mustache. Once all of the cards are used, students can use the point value sheet to tally up their points to determine the winner.

Many students struggle with reading comprehension strategies, such as man idea, due to their underlying language weaknesses (lexical and syntactical). SLPs can assist students by addressing these areas which will then assist them with their reading comprehension. (Nippold, 2017).

What are other customers saying about this product?

"Fun way to work on main idea! My students love keeping score to see who can win the game."

"I love that this activity can be used at anytime of the year, and especially on our school mustache day! Thank you - so cute and so practical."

"Fun activity! Used this as an intro to Main Idea with my high schoolers after moving on to a more complex main idea task. Very creative... thinking of cutting out the mustaches, attaching them to sticks, and taking pictures of the kids holding them up to their faces once we complete Main Idea. :)"
