Well, one of my favorite reading skills is featured in reading this week...main idea and supporting details! hmy: My kids do very well writing paragraphs with a topic sentence and details, but usually struggle to transfer that skill to other paragraphs that they read. I'm trying to come up with some "at your desk" activities for tomorrow and the next day. I was thinking about typing the sentences of a paragraph and cutting them out so they are on separate slips of paper. Then they have to sort to find topic sentence, details, and things that I include but don't belong. Got any more ideas to share???
