Here is our fifth installment of using effective anchor charts and interactive Power Points for teaching reading skills to your students. Enjoy!
Main Idea Anchor Chart
Below is an example of a main idea and details anchor chart. We thought a table was a good analogy for this topic. The supporting details are the foundation for the surface which is the main idea. Without the supporting details there wouldn’t be a main idea. Our students were able to grasp this concept.
The focus the PowerPoint is for students to understand what the main idea is and how supporting details relate back to the main idea. We created a summary game where students have to read a passage and determine what the main idea of the passage is. It is highly interactive and engaging for students. We have them record their answers in their reading notebooks and then share the correct answers. It is a great discussion tool for your class.
Our Power Points are all interactive, which means that your students are actively involved in the learning process! No more boring books that students don’t connect too!
