Last week we were looking at the reading strategy of how to identify 'Main Idea' when we are reading. Sometimes it can be easily found in the first sentence or perhaps the last, but sometimes it can be trickier than that and you have to 'infer' or use the clues in the text to help you decide what the main idea is. This week in our literacy activities we will be playing some of these games to help use become more efficient (better) at figuring out the main idea. Make sure you think about the key ideas we were working on last week as you complete the activities. Click on the pictures.
Watch the following video. It's a fable titled "The Lion and the Mouse". A fable is a short imaginary story that teaches a moral or lesson. While you watch the video, think about the lesson it teaches; that is the same thing as the main idea of the story. Post a comment below telling me what you think the 'Main Idea' of the fable was.
