Reflection: Michelle Kwan: Topic, Main Idea & Supporting details continued - Section 3: Independent Practice


I noticed that some of my kids struggled because they can't just read a section and say, "Bam! There's the main idea!" So, I found this graphic organizer that has them identify the topic, then list supporting details and then form the main idea from that.  This is super helpful for the kids who need to first identify the facts and then state the main idea. 

*Check out the graphic organizer in the resources section!
