Product Description

Make nonfiction reading at home more meaningful while connecting to Common Core Standards. Students often struggle with identifying the Topic, Main Idea, and Supporting Details in nonfiction text. I created this explicit graphic organizer as a weekly reading log for my students while we were studying nonfiction in class. I recommend modeling for a week beforehand and having students use the class led copy as a reference in the future. I also recommend providing nonfiction texts that are expository, simple, short, and high-interest texts. This ensures they will have the correct materials to do quality work. The following format is ideal:

  • Topic is title/what book is all about
  • Main idea is subtitle/chapter
  • Supporting Details are facts within the chapter

The more guided instruction in the beginning, the better, especially for the younger ones. I collect these every Friday morning and use them as assessments as well as guidance for small group instruction. Focus suggestions are paraphrasing, generalizations, being more specific, using text features, and supporting details relate to main idea.
