Product Description
This is the only resource is I use for finding theme in literature in a text. This lesson can really be used to introduce this idea, or reinforce it later on in the year. These slides can easily be adapted to a 5th-9th grade level.

This lesson includes two versions. One version is set up to teach theme with the story, Gift of the Magi; two copies of this story are included.

One version is the original and I have included an adapted version for any struggling reader, ESL student, or lower grade level.

The second version of this presentation is setup to use ANY novel, short story or picture book.

The lesson includes a step by step formula to help students understand the difference between a topic and a theme, and once done, develop and test for a sound theme within a text.

There are answer slides included for the Gift of the Magi presentation.

I hope you and your students enjoy this resource.
