This writing mini unit is designed to help your kiddos learn about main idea, details and conclusions and how to add them to their writing. It is a unit that builds upon their knowledge lesson, by lesson, and it's all you need to a few weeks worth of lessons! I use an umbrella to help out with the concepts of main idea, details, and conclusion which is what the poster demonstrates.
Included in the Pack:
*Main idea umbrella poster
*3 stories/pictures where students come up with the main idea
*3 printables where students write a main idea
*3 printables with a main idea where students add details
*3 printables with stories where students cross out details that are off topic
*3 stories where students write a conclusion
Writing rubric based off of the ideas and organization trait
Here you can find some labels for a display to help your students to understand main idea even better: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Main-Idea-Details-Conclusion-Writing-Helper-938512
