    • Theme Resource

    Students often struggle with understanding the difference between a main idea

    (theme topic) and the theme (a message or lesson the author tries to teach the reader through the main idea).

    That is why I included a resource that helps students identify a theme topic and then use that topic to create a theme statement (message/lesson of the text)!

    • Planning Sheet

    Tasks students with identifying a theme topic, creating a theme statement, and identify characters and events that relate to the theme, to help students prepare for what they will include in their theme analysis text.

    • Templates

    - Template one focuses on events that relate to the theme. There are two versions.

    - Template two focuses on characters that relate to the theme.

    Each version comes with a copy that either focuses on students analyzing a theme topic OR a theme statement!
