These 20 main idea task cards are perfect for SBAC and standardized test prep. They use excerpts from popular youth novels to help engage your students as they practice finding the main idea. Each card contains one short excerpt, two multiple choice questions, and one short response question. They can be used in small groups, literacy centers, stations, partner work, intervention groups, and much more. You could also use one card at a time with your whole class as a warm-up, mini-lesson, or exit ticket. An answer key is included as well as a main idea poster and student recording sheet.
