You will receive four short stories. Students will then answer questions concerning the main idea of the story.
As an added BONUS I have just added five additional pages for main idea that can be used during the holidays. Now in addition to receiving materials to practice main idea in general, you can reteach the same skill again and again with main idea stories related to different holidays! Therefore, when you purchase this product you will be able to use it many different times throughout the school year!
Please review some of my other sales in reading. Rather than just provide students and ask them to answer a question, I am selling 8 different listings for reading. Each reading focuses on one of the major areas of reading: (1) Vocabulary, (2) Compare and Contrast, (3) Fact and Opinion, (4) Story Elements, (5) Author Purpose, (6) Main Idea, (7) Interpreting Information, and (8) Cause and Effect. If you truly want your child/student to excel in reading then they must first master the various skills of reading in isolation.
In addition I am an elementary school teacher, but also a published author. On this website I include explanations, examples and worksheets for teachers, parents and students that are all taken from my workbook on expository writing as well as the 8 benchmarks of reading.
