Product Description
This lesson uses Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen, to help students discover and explain themes in a story. It comes from my Owl Moon Literature Unit. You can check out the entire unit right here:

My Favorite Read Alouds: Owl Moon {Literature Unit}

The lesson has two parts. In the first part, the teacher explains the concept of 'theme,' then reads aloud Owl Moon, practicing with students how to identify themes from the story, as well as give details from the story to support and explain a theme. Students then respond in writing by choosing one theme from Owl Moon to explain.

The second part of the lesson focuses on one theme from Owl Moon: hope. After a guided discussion, students create an acrostic poem for the word 'hope,' with story details for each letter.

Detailed lesson plan and differentiated versions of both printables are included.

You can read about how I used this lesson with my own students, right HERE on my blog.
