Main Idea and Supporting Details

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.
