Do you have any ideas to help my students find main ideas with supporting details that doesn’t involve resource sheets?



Take a look at the Book Punch Evidence and Inference activities. These activities help students get the main idea of a novel and use details to support their opinion.

Book Punch guides students through the writing process using interactive prompts to focus thinking about a particular book.

Students use Book Punch to gather ideas, organize their thoughts, compose sentences, revise, edit and publish responses to a work of literature.

All of the books covered in Book Punch are commonly read in schools today. Books may be assigned to a whole class or to each pupil’s individual reading level.
