Themes in poetry and other literature can confuse many students, but theme does not have to be a difficult or boring concept to learn.
That is why I created these theme cards and activities.
You can do these activities over a week as a whole class.
Or after introducing theme to your class, you can use the cards and stories as a Daily 5/ reading center activity.
16 Theme Cards
Hang up the theme cards up on a bulletin board.
Use them as a reference during reading.
Create a writing center where students write stories that matches the theme.
Use the stories to help your students learn how to identify a theme.
Have your students write a summary that includes the theme.
