This resource is a flipbook for teaching and practicing determining the theme of literature.
The flipbook contains a page for each of the following:
What Is Theme? – Provides a definition of theme
Common Themes – Provides a list of common themes found in literature
Determining Theme – Helpful information for the students to use to determine theme
What Is the Theme? - The last three flaps contain stories for the students to read and determine possible themes. They will write the possible themes (using the “Common Themes” flap if needed) and their evidence on the back of the flaps.

The students will cut out each piece of the flipbook (seven total pieces) and assemble it as shown in the PDF resource.
I have included two printable versions of this flipbook. Version A has all seven pieces on three pages. Each student gets three pages. The other version would allow the teacher to print the sections on different colored paper.
