PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Product Description

Teach students how to analyze theme using an easy, step-by-step method with children's books! Students will think of theme topics, find text evidence, and write thematic statements. I include a model for "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds to get you started.

Why this works: Students have an easy-to-understand reference which explains how to arrive at theme. By watching the teacher practice with a children’s book, students visually see the steps involved in arriving at theme and have a self-made sample to use in the future.

This method can be used in elementary through high school because you model with a children's book before you change the level of text complexity to fit your students' reading levels.

With this purchase, you will get
• a complete set of teacher instructions
• a sample assignment for "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds to guide you
• a blank graphic organizer for students to practice on
• a student handout for use with future short stories or novels

STAAR and Common Core aligned.
