Here is what we learned...
Things to look at to help determine the main idea:
4. Picture clues
5. Text clues
6. Repeated words
7. First sentence of a passage/ last sentence of a passage
(Ask your kids about this...they should know every answer on this list!)
We refer to these notes to help us figure out the main idea!
We also played a sort game. This time they had to sort the words (details) into groups and decide what the main idea of each group should be.
