Looking for a Main Idea Anchor Chart? We’ve Got You Covered!

Identifying a text’s main idea and details is often one of the hardest reading skills to teach in lower grades. The concept is abstract to young readers, and it is quite often impossible to find structured, explicit instructional materials to help teach these skills to elementary school students.

Let us help you solve that problem with a standards-based, content-aligned Main Idea anchor chart. This anchor chart is geared specifically to the primary learner and provides them with a visually appealing and easy-to-understand example of a nonfiction text. It features a high-interest nonfiction piece about the whale shark and highlights how to find the main idea based on the text features included in the infographic.

This main idea anchor chart is aligned to be used with our Main Idea and Details Instructional Google Slides.
