Item description

This set of no-prep worksheets teaches beginning readers how to find the main idea and details when reading. They are designed for students working on a first grade level.

STUDENTS WILL:

  • read a short passage or story
  • answer comprehension questions about the story
  • identify the main idea
  • identify details that tell more about the main idea

There are 8 sets of worksheets in this pack:

  • PAGE 1 of each set features a short story or informational passage. Students will read the passage and then use the text to answer three comprehension questions.
  • PAGE 2 is a cut-and-paste graphic organizer. Students cut out three statements from the text and glue them onto the graphic organizer to show which is the main idea and which are the details.
  • Each set also includes answer keys.

While these activities are designed to help teach main idea, they also let your students practice reading grade-appropriate text and finding answers in the text. When answering the comprehension questions, I like to have my students highlight where they found the answers (as pictured on the cover). This shows me that they referred back to the text to find the information.

EACH PASSAGE FEATURES:

  • Decodable text with common first grade sight words
  • Clear, easy-to-read font
  • Uncluttered design that lets students focus on the text
  • Answers that can be found directly in the text

These work well as homework, in literacy centers, or even for assessment. They are also excellent for students with a main idea IEP goal because they let you easily target the skill and collect specific data.
