This is an interactive SMART lesson that introduces and reinforces the Main idea of a story. Covering the new common core for both fiction and non-fiction stories there are many opportunities for learning.
Using The Three Little Pigs to find the main idea, practicing finding the meat of a story,key details and looking at the most important event.
I created this file to prepare my kids for all that would be expected during their DRA assessments and STAR assessments. Both assessments ask students to pick out the most important event or the main idea.
We love using the SMARTboard to introduce and practice concepts. Add a few worksheets from your Main Idea file and you have a wonderful lesson ready to go.
