Help introduce main idea to students with this short song. Help students identify main idea in a text.

Lyrics:

The Main Idea
Is what the author wants to say
The Main Idea
Is what the reader takes away
The Main Idea
Is what the text is all about
The Main Idea
Is what we’re trying to figure out

First determine the topic of the text
Here are some pointers in case you are perplexed
Read the title and check the pictures, too
Look for repeated words to see if there’s a clue

When you know the topic then you can consider
What’s the big idea the author has delivered?
Can summarize the entire thing?
What is the overarching lesson of the writing?

Now you’re ready to go give it a try
Figure out the the topic, tell us what it does and why
You can do it! Stand up and give a cheer!
You can do it! You can find the main idea!

Can be used to support lessons addressing standards:
