The main idea of a story is the most important idea, and tells what the story is about. In this worksheet, students learn what a main idea is, then practice identifying it in a series of three paragraphs. After reading each text selection, kids choose between one of two main ideas. Whimsical illustrations lend extra appeal! This resource, created for a first grade curriculum, supports children as they work on their fiction comprehension and learn to identify the central message, lesson, or moral in fiction texts.
