My students did not understand theme until we did this activity. It was a lot easier for them to grasp the concept when it was related to movies. It was then easy to move on to harder text.

This activity is very motivating for my students and wonderful for using to teach Theme Topic. I then asked my students to use the topic to create the message that author wants us to apply to our own lives. Some fonts were a little difficult to read. Thanks for sharing!

In a classroom where students are reluctant readers and are in a small rural community this product is perfect. The students may know the movies and relate to that knowledge rather than the stories. Also, the summaries of the movies so if the student is not familiar with the movie is perfect to still teach the lessons of theme.

The font is pretty difficult to read. Would you care to email me a copy of the original, so I could change it to something serif?

Great idea! I was looking online for some sort of activity to teach theme and you are the only one I could find that had something! Bought it and I'm excited to have my kids use it next week. Is there anyway I could get a copy of this with a different font though? With some of the letters capital, some lower case, and some with a star, it might be difficult for some of my students to read easily. Thanks for your help!
