    main idea
    By Jackie

    What I do to start them thinking of main idea isn't a lesson plan but "2 Word Weekend". Every Monday students want to share what they did over the weekend which would normally take forever. Forcing students to share only 2 words really helps by 1) addressing each student 2)thinking of main idea 3)find out how the child's weekend went. For instance - "Picnic -park" or "Dad's house" You get them to focus on tasks while providing an incredibly quick way to let each one know they matter.
