This is designed to be printed on Avery 8163 shipping labels for students to place in their Reader's Notebook. It gives a definition of what the main idea of a text is vs. what the theme of a text is. I teach mini-lessons on main idea and theme and students then place the label on a clean sheet in their Reader's NB to annotate and take notes of examples I have given and examples they come up with. They then can flip back to their NB when needing to recall and the anchor charts in my classroom are now down. They are building their reading repertoire. I have added a full sheet in English and a full Sheet in Spanish.
