Main Idea *Freebie!*

Another winter storm has extended my weekend...
So I'm REALLY trying to think SPRING! {flowers, birds, sunshine... I need them ALL!}
Main Idea is one topic that were are always working on.  Seriously, this is a tough concept for the little ones!  Heck, I'm an adult and sometimes I can't decide what the best main idea is!
We'll be working on it for the rest of the year, I'm sure.
In my "think spring" mode, I whipped up this super quick main idea interactive notebook page.
It's simple, but there are lots of fun ways you could use it:
-To write what the main idea is & tips for finding details.
-After a class read aloud, guide students to record the main idea & details together
-As an assessment on main idea & details after students read a story or passage (that's how I plan to use it this week)
Click on the pic to grab it!
My fingers are crossed, & I'm saying extra prayers for warm weather to finally come our way to stay!
