Earlier this week, I posted a picture of a poster that a first grade teacher submitted (click here to see the poster). This poster inspired me to make a series of worksheets that ask students to describe a picture with only the main idea and then using the details. The poster is the example of how to complete the worksheet. It seemed to work out best with my students if I did the first example with them, and modeled how to write a sentence for each one (main idea and details).
