Identifying the Main Idea is such an important skill, but can sometimes be hard for young learners to grasp.
I’ve made it easy to teach your students this important comprehension skill and to differentiate practice opportunities for them!
This bundle includes a teaching presentation that breaks down this difficult concept into easy-to-follow steps! It even has AUDIO, which is perfect for distance learning! Your students can simply click to hear the presentation read to them.
It has everything you need to teach and reinforce Main Idea & Details in a fun, exciting way!!
In keeping with my character packs, this one has a Main Idea Moose to help make the strategy more memorable and engaging, but I also included posters and materials without the moose as an option.
