Does your school require you to use Open Court Reading? Then make it work for you, and your students! This presentation introduces students to the concepts of a main idea and supporting details. Direct instruction is provided at the beginning, and then the skill is applied in the reading of "Teammates." The presentation is scaffolded to support all learners, and has numerous images included to enhance understanding. Time and again these lessons have proven successful for me and my students; I think if you try one, you'll certainly enjoy it! Please visit my other products, thank you, Steve P.S.
