This week, the new reading skill that we are working on is the main idea. I am not even going to lie...this is one reading skill that I don't particularly love to teach. It just always seems to be one of the more difficult concepts for my kiddos. I did some searching around on TPT and found some great main idea activities that I just can't wait to use! I LOVE TPT! What a time-saver it has been for me!
On top of that, one of my wonderful co-workers shared a cute main idea activity with me! It is a little foldable main idea table. It is such a cute way to visually show the main idea as the center, the big picture on the table, and representing the supporting details on the table legs since the legs support the table....just like the supporting details "support" the main idea! :) How brilliant is that! Anyway, after about 30 minutes of trying to draw and cut out little tables, my perfectionism got the best of me! I quit, went straight to powerpoint, and created a template to use! Just thought I'd share it because these are so stinkin' cute! Click here to download the template & instructions for FREE! :)
I can't wait to do thise with my class this week! They're going to be so cute!
