Identifying Theme PowerPoint
I teach an inclusion ESE class and have struggled greatly with getting my students to be able identify the theme of a story. By using fun, familiar stories, and an easy to use graphic organizer I found my students had a better understanding of the concepts. I created this easy to use PowerPoint that contains lesson essential questions, along with graphic organizers, visuals, and reading passage excerpts to help guide my students through this difficult concept. By the end of the first few stories, my students were experts at identifying the author's theme and eager to read more fables and folktales.
The graphic organizer that is embedded within this PowerPoint is a freebie on my site.
