PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do your students need practice in finding a theme? This is the activity for you!

Students read “How Sun, Moon, and Wind Went Out to Dinner” (an Indian fairy tale by Joseph Jacobs that is now in public domain) then use a step-by-step process to locate related details, pinpoint a theme, and express thoroughly in one paragraph.

What’s included?
• “How Sun, Moon, and Wind Went Out to Dinner”
• Lesson plans
• Poster with steps for finding a theme
• Two student sheets that guide students through the process

More Theme Resources
• For fourth graders, try RL.4.2 Finding a Theme.
• For fifth graders, check out RL.5.2 Finding a Theme.
• Both include everything you need for direct instruction and modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and assessment. A PowerPoint presentation teaches students to find a theme then express it in a constructed response. Literature, organizers, and rubrics are provided too!
