Main idea and supporting details is an important objective to teach. It can be found in writing and reading. In writing, the main idea is the topic sentence of a body paragraph and the students must use supporting details to back up it up. On the other hand, in reading, the students must read a passage or paragraph to identify the main idea. Many students can struggle with finding the main idea of the text. As a result, I have created a fun and interactive game to practice main idea and details with your students titled, ” Tic-Tac-Toe Four Twisty Cards in a Row!”
All you have to do is print out the cards and game pieces and laminate for future use! This game can be played with a partner or as a whole class broken into teams. It is played the same way as a regular game of Tic-Tac-Toe; however, there are four cards that throw the game for a loop from remove a piece from the board to skip a turn.
When playing in a group, break your class into two teams. One team will be X and the other team O. Alternate between teams in the card selection process. Each person on a team should have a turn to pick a card so that everyone is participating. Your students will have so much fun playing this game! Ready to have some fun in your class? Click here.
