Product Details

Instructional scaffolding is how teachers first introduce basic concepts and skills to early learners. Here's the theme-based support you need to make it fun for children to practice informative writing: a model for identifying main ideas, a guide for developing main idea sentences on different topics; and a reproducible for reinforcing these Common Core skills.

Great for whole class instruction, independent reading, or homework.

Teaching Tips

Invite volunteers to read their main ideas and sentences to the class. Have listeners use these criteria to assess other students’ work: identified main ideas and developed main idea sentences.
