Main Idea Mix Ups!

Did you catch my Valentine's Day and Presidents Day Main Idea Mix Up freebies?

If you liked those, I've finally finished the literacy center set that can be used at any time of the year!  There are 4 sets that feature penguins, cupcakes, monsters, and forest friends.

If this is your first time seeing this activity each set includes 2 main idea cards and 8 supporting detail cards.  Students will use the 2 graphic organizer boards to sort the details to match the main ideas.  Then students can use the themed writing paper to write either a narrative or informational piece using one of the completed graphic organizer boards.

One of the great things about this is that this center can be differentiated by requiring students to either simply create a story using the information given for early learners or older students needing remediation.  For higher learners needing a challenge you can simply request that students add research or text-to-self connections to their writing.
