There are three activities in this packet. It is a very basic introduction that is simple to follow. It begins with a retelling of Cinderella which follows with finding the main idea, including details, and finding the theme, including examples. I gave some examples that students might use, but I hope you will have the students write/discuss their own ideas. The next part is for students to practice as a group and use a short passage to find the main idea and the theme. The final passage is a short story to assess what the students have learned. It is simple and can be used as part of sub plans ( easily).
