This last week second grade is working on main idea. The teachers are working on modeling main idea strategies with the story for the week. We use Texas Treasures as a curriculum resource. Family Farm Then and Now was the story for the week. The students and teachers created a main idea table on chart paper.
Teaching main idea is definitely a Texas TEK but also a necessary part of reading comprehension. You can find our campus wide strategy in our PLAYBOOK. The Reading Strategies playbook is free and a work in progress. The district visiting us left with a copy of our plan.
What strategies do you use to teach main idea?
