Sea of Knowledge's Free Main Idea Activities with Newspaper Articles

Hello everyone! I have an awesome activity to share with you today – the best thing about it is it can be setup in just minutes or with just a bit of prep can be a station you visit and re-visit throughout the year. Have you ever had trouble teaching the main idea to your students? I teach ESL students – and they particularly struggle with this concept! Here's a simple station you can prep in no time and re-visit throughout the year over and over again!
 
MainIdeaActivitieswithNewspapers
