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!
