Main Ideas and Supporting Details Instruction, Activities and Games

Posted by Erica Warren on

Many students struggle with the concepts of main ideas and supporting details.  What’s more, many often find the instruction and activities associated with these abstract ideas to be boring.

Why is it Important for Students to Master Main Ideas and Details?

Main ideas and details are a foundational approach to organizing information, and it is commonly used to help students navigate textbooks, arrange their written language and prepare presentations and discussions.  It is a orderly formula to learning that makes it easier for students to encode the learning content.

How Can Main Idea and Supporting Details Instruction Be Fun and Memorable?

I offer a main idea and supporting details product that presents engaging, multisensory, and mindful lessons, handouts, activities and games. A charming, cartoon-like character, the Main I-deer, walks your students through the learning process in a fun and memorable way and activities help them to practice the lesson.  In addition, this product includes two card games (beginners and intermediate) that can be used for group work, learning centers, or individual remediation.
