This main idea graphic organizer directly aligns with second grade Informational Text Standard 2- identify the main topic of a
multiparagraph text as well as the focus of specific paragraphs within the text.
Beside main idea and details, I also use it during Reader's Workshop with nonfiction books to reinforce text features like table of contents, chapter titles, and headings/subheadings. My students find it easy to use and it directly supports Common Core.
I hope you find it useful in your classroom- and please don't forget to rate this product!
