Swap, Share, Give!

I am very excited to be part of this Product Swap with some of my Aussie Bloggy Buddies.  This time around I have been paired up with Yara from Sea of Knowledge and I got to try out her It's a Bee's World; Finding the Main Idea pack.  

First I need to say I loved the variety of activities in this pack, it includes a poster, cut and paste activities as well as reading and writing activities.  Even better Yara takes this a little further to investigate supporting details and Topic sentence activities.

I was able to provide some differentiation for some of my students who were of a higher ability and support for those who struggle a little with this concept.  One of the ways I was able to use this for differentiation was to give my strugglers the multiple choice sheets and my more capable kiddos the sheets where they had to write the main idea.

Now onto the share part of this post.  I am happy to share with you all my latest freebie Balloon Pop to 10
