Read 180 Update
1st Workshop: Bullies Beware (Sept. 19th-30th)
In this workshop we are learning how to summarize by identifying the main idea and the key details in passages. To summarize, students first should identify the topic of the reading. The topic tells what the reading is mainly about, and it closely relates to the main idea. The main idea is typically stated in the first paragraph of the reading. After identifying the main idea, students identify four key details that support the main idea. The key details are the important information that correlates with the main idea. Using these components, students create a summary of the reading in their own words. As students bring home nonfiction books or review science or social studies assignments, please reinforce this skill of identifying the main idea and key details.
This week students will bring home a READO card, which is a reading incentive program headed by Kay Paul, our Media Specialist. Students receive prizes for reading a variety of books.
