Theme Story Cards for CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2
Use these 15 story cards to help your students gain confidence in finding the theme of a story. There are two different answer sheets so that you can differentiate as needed: multiple choice and free response. There is also answer key applicable to both answer sheets so that students can check their own work. Students can also use notebook paper or journals to answer these questions..
These cards can be used for individual practice or for your entire class or a small group by reading each story aloud and working together to determine the theme.
Since theme is subjective, the answers on the free response answer key are suggestions, but your students may come up with different variations.
These cards will print in color or grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Students can keep these in writer’s notebooks, reading journals or turn them in at the end of the activity. You can also print them on card stock or laminate them to use again and again. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
