Main Idea in a Story

Identify the main idea in a story! Young learners listen to a story of your choosing and, through guiding questions and class discussion, create a title that captures the main idea. After writing their story title on a sheet of paper, they create an illustration to accompany it. A great lesson for introducing young readers to the concept of a main idea and how a title often reflects the main idea!
