Main Idea Worksheets

It isn't theme. It isn't purpose. The key to reading comprehension is grasping the main idea. Having this "inside information" is the boost students need to wade through difficult vocabulary and content. Students will build strength in this area with these no prep workbooks that includes both locating and supplying main ideas and supporting details in stories and nonfiction paragraphs. Interesting reading comprehension books at all levels are part of this unit. Graphic organizers add a visual component.
