This product includes a list of the most common themes found in children and young adult literature. This list is perfect to have made into a poster for your classroom or copies made for your students' reading notebooks.
This list helps students to find the theme and critical concept in literature. It can be hard for students to find the right words to describe the theme or message, but this list helps students put their thinking into a shared language. My students and I use this list after each piece of literature we read to describe the theme.
