These 8 reading passages are designed for 3rd grade or 4th grade students to read and determine the main idea. The practice is leveled so that one set of the reading passages has multiple choice answers, and the other set of task cards are free response (students must decide on the main idea independently).

Nearly A Full Year of Daily Common Core of Grade 4 Reading Practice--EVERY Literature and Informational Text Standard is included. Multiple choice and written response formats are both included. Inferences, main idea, point of view, and additional comprehension skills and strategies are reviewed in manageable, daily doses. This is an excellent way to help students apply reading strategies consistently and build reading, social studies, and science knowledge. $

This brief, fun animation helps explain how to Compare and Contrast two texts - a key learning objective of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts. www.flexliteracy.com

Inference Task Cards

Inference Task Cards: 24 Cards with short stories and questions.

Sequencing: students draw 4 pictures on index cards from important parts from the story they just read. Then, they add sentences explaining which part of the story they illustrated. Then, they put the events in order.

The Puzzling Main Idea contains directions and materials needed for 5 different Main Idea Activities. They are tons of fun, hands-on, and a perfect continuation to Main Idea mini-lessons! The activities encourage whole class, partner/group, and independent work/critical thinking! If followed in order, the activities teach Main Idea first in a more concrete manner, allowing children to slowly be able to apply their new skills to more difficult tasks, and eventually to text.
