PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS MY ORIGINAL "TEACHING and FINDING THEME" ALONG WITH MY "ANTIBULLYING" TEACHING W/ THEME PRODUCT!

A FAVORITE WITH MY STUDENTS!

These short stories are HIGH INTEREST, realistic fiction, written with an identifiable THEME. I wrote them for the purpose of students to gain confidence with understanding and identifying the tricky concept of THEME.

Teaching theme is fun if you have the right resource! This resource contains enough material for WEEKS OF INSTRUCTION.

Although the stories were written for teaching theme, they can also be used to review or introduce CHARACTER TRAITS/CONFLICT, STORY ELEMENTS, SUMMARY and much more. They work great at reading groups or for whole group shared reading instruction. The texts can be read again and again, each time reading for a different purpose.

THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS TWO PARTS: EACH CAN BE ACCESSED AS A SEPARATE RESOURCE FROM A ZIP COMPRESSED FOLDER.
