Main Idea Monday

WOW!!! What a day we had in my second grade class! I get to school early only to remember that I had PD scheduled for the last half of the day. SO I got to spend a whole two hours with my kids today. I wanted to start posting a Main Idea Monday today, but there was no time to get to that. So just to start the trend off, here is a main idea project I did with the kids last week.

We read the story "I Need My Monster", which by the way the kids really loved! We then talked about what the main idea might be from the story. The students then created these mobils that have the main idea listed on the big part and three details listed on the ghosts.
They had a great time with this and the activity really helped them understand the concept a little better. Since main idea and details are on our CIP this year, I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of it from me. Hope you enjoy!
