Description

Our Main Idea lesson plan for grades 1-2 introduces young students to the concept of main ideas, how to identify them, and why they are important to understand. During this lesson, students are asked to read passages, complete a chart designed to lead the students to the main idea, and identify the main idea of the passage with three supporting details. They are asked to complete this process for two pre-selected passages as well as a passage they select on their own.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to correctly identify the main idea of informational and literary texts. Students will also be able to explain how details support the identification of the main idea.
