What Is The Main Idea?

Using The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss and Marsupial Sue by John Lithgow, young readers practice identifying the main idea of a story. They discuss the main idea of a magazine picture, complete graphic organizers for both books, and create a class slideshow of main ideas of their favorite classroom book. Look at main ideas across stories, in a variety of formats.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
