Some of you may be familiar with the Main Idea Mix Up literacy centers I made for Valentine's Day and Presidents Day.

Just like the holiday mix ups, these graphic organizer boards and detail cards can be differentiated for different grade levels and levels of learners. Once the main ideas and details have been matched up on their graphic organizer boards, students will use the information to write a narrative or informational piece. They can be differentiated by changing assignment expectations. Early learners can start with basic information found in the cards. Higher level learners can add research to informational pieces or text-to-self connections to narrative pieces.
