Main Idea 1 helps kids who have trouble with reading comprehension. Identifying the main idea is a key part of reading comprehension as it allows you to figure out 'what a text is about'.
Main Idea 1 builds this comprehension skill step-by-step until mastery.
***** 5 Stars - Thank you for this app! Other software I've used has moved too quickly for my son. This one worked! Can't wait for Main Idea 2...it's coming, right?
Main Idea 1 is targeted to children in Grades 2-5 who can read the words (decode), but don't understand what they read. Beginning readers in earlier grades can also benefit from the targeted skill development.
The focus of Main Idea 1 is making sure kids know what a sentence is about: what it tells them and what it does not tell them. This skill must be firmly established before a child can determine what a paragraph or page is about.
