Product Description
This topic and main idea PowerPoint goes over the steps students should take to find the topic and main idea in a paragraph. The PowerPoint is acceptable for 2nd through 4th grade and uses key vocabulary for those ELL learners. The PowerPoint goes in depth on finding the topic by providing reading strategies such as looking for repeated words and proper nouns in the paragraph. The presentation also shows students a formula for finding the main idea which is the topic + a statement about the topic = main idea.

After the students have practiced finding the main idea and topic on the PowerPoint, then they can be given the activity sheets to help them work on finding the topic and main idea as independent practice.
