PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Three fables from Aesop provide practice in connecting details from a story to find a theme and writing a paragraph to express that theme. Students identify connected details, translate those details into a theme, and write a constructed response, including a topic sentence, detail sentences, and conclusion.

What’s Included:
• A poster with four steps for finding and writing about theme
• Three fables adapted for fourth grade readers: “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” “The Miller, His Son, and the Donkey,” and “The Fox and the Crow”
• Three corresponding organizers that guide students to find connected details then write a theme that provides an overarching idea
• Three corresponding answer sheets suitable for classroom display
• Generic organizer and answer sheet to use for any theme activity
• Rubric for constructed response on theme
