    I'm going to introduce main idea to my 1st graders during our shared reading time. What's the best way to do this so they can understand the concept?

    Start by teaching the students to identify the topic of a story and then the sentence that best sums the story.

    I would choose very short passages to share with the students when introducing this with the main idea directly stated as one of the sentences...
