What educators are saying

This was a wonderful resource, and it was exactly what we needed for Main Idea and details! Thank you!!
I love using visuals to help students understand main topic. This really helped my EL students understand what a main topic is and how the details must go with the main topic. Thank you!


Are you looking for fun, hands on, engaging activities to teach main idea? This mini pack includes 3 activities that are perfect for the little ones. Here's a closer look at what is included:

-On the Move: students work in groups to sort picture cards (details) and find the matching main idea. Optional extension activity included.

-I'm Puzzled: students find the matching pieces (details) to their main idea (puzzle). Optional extension activity included.

-Spin It: students spin a spinner to find 4 details. Students write a sentence for each detail and write the main idea of their short story.

These activities were created with Kinder and First in mind, but can easily be used in a 2nd grade classroom by using the extension ideas.

Please ask questions before purchasing.
