    Main Idea
    By Julie

    Our lesson study team just got done doing a great lesson on main idea and supporting details. After doing some lead up lessons as a whole group with picture books (look for details in pictures, coming to a consensus on the main idea of the text), we had students in small groups look at a magazine picture and discuss what details they saw. We gave them a graphic organizer and they had to work together to write down the details around the outside, and come up with a main idea in the center. Finally, students were given four stickers and they had to decide which four details best supported the main idea. They also had the opportunity to share with the class why they felt their detail supported the main idea. If you want more details, let me know!
