Identifying the Topic

Finding the main idea of a passage can sometimes be tricky for young readers. One way to build this skill is to practice identifying a topic. This fun and interactive game asks readers to look at several words and decide which word represents the topic of the group. Players will also sort words into categories and practice labeling categories for a group of words. Finally, players will read three different paragraphs and choose a topic for each that is not too narrow and not too broad. Students can practice main idea skills while having fun!
