Main Idea and Details *FREEBIE*!

I'm super close to 5,000 followers on TpT so I thought I'd celebrate with a little freebie!

Click the pic to check it out!

We did this in my after-school program last week as a "race" and it was a big hit!  I printed each page on one color paper, cut into strips, divided the kiddos into teams, and gave each team one set of the strips.  On my say so, they started reading and arranging the strips to show the main idea and supporting details while I walked around and checked their understanding.  When each group was correct, each group moved to another set of strips and we repeated the process until every group had arranged each set of strips.  We talked about main idea and details after!

The winning team each round each got one Nerd... and they were delighted!

I hope you like it... don't forget to leave feedback!  :)

There's still one more day to catch 15% off on everything in my TpT store too!  The sale ends tomorrow!
