## Main Idea & Supporting Details

Learning to identify the main idea and supporting details in text is important because it translates to being able to write good paragraphs. Help your student identify the main idea and supporting details in text he reads as well as his own writing. This is a skill that needs a lot of practice.
The topic of Main Idea and Supporting Details is found in both Reading and Writing. Help your students make the connection between the two subjects by reading texts and identifying the key components.
