This is a comprehension skill worksheet in which students are required to identify the main idea or central thought of 12 different paragraphs. Some of the paragraphs are fictional, and some are factual. Students are directed to read each paragraph and also the titles on top of them. To answer they circle the best titles, which are also the main ideas of the paragraphs. Besides recognizing main ideas, this worksheet also gives students practice reading new material independently.
The worksheet is geared to 2nd to 4th graders, but would also work well with 1st graders who read fluently, and also well with older Special Education students and English Second Language students.
An answer key is included.
