Skill library: Main Idea

Welcome to the Storyworks 3 Skill Library! Help your students learn how to identify a story's main idea by using the resources below.


First, introduce main idea to your students with our slideshow. Follow up by having them practice the skill on a Storyworks 3 story of their choosing. We offer two formats for skills practice: a guided interactive activity and a downloadable skill builder.


Essential Question: How can finding the main idea help you better remember what you’ve read?
