Description

Our Main Idea lesson plan for grades 5-6 develops reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. A foundational skill required for all in-depth analysis of literature and expository text, identifying the main idea is a critical skill that students will use throughout their academic and professional careers as readers. During this lesson, students are asked to read a given story and complete the main idea and supporting details chart in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify main ideas and cite supporting details to defend their identification of main ideas in expository and literary texts.

The students really enjoyed the story. It definitely pushed them to think at a higher level than some of the other activities that offer multiple choice.

I was looking for something different to teach my class. The passages were high interest to keep my class engaged but still reinforce the concept being taught.

I just want to say thanks for the 'Main Idea" topic that you allowed me to download for free. This information was helpful to my son who was struggling in his english class and helpful to me as a parent in assisting him.
