Included are 9 sets of pictures. Each set of pictures are the details to the overall set's main idea!
I used in a kindergarten classroom (Whole group) to introduce Main Idea.
To do so, I started with all the cards labeled #1. Using the Elmo, I displayed the set of cards and we discussed what we saw on each card. Next, the kinders discussed in their small groups what they thought the overall main idea of the picture set was. Then we shared answers and I confirmed the main idea!
They loved this activity!
I also used this activity with a small group of 2nd grade friends who needed additional practice identifying the main idea.
Simply print the cards on cardstock, laminate to reuse, and cut out
