Product Description
Focus in on the theme of a story with your students using these fun, practical passages. This pack contains ten passages specifically designed to teach students how to determine the theme of a story. Each single page story features a response sheet in which students will take a closer look at the central message behind each story.

Student response sheets cover a wide variety of answer formats. Students may respond to short answer questions or by filling in a graphic organizer. Many response pages require students to use text evidence to support their answers. An answer key is included for each passage.

These passages and response sheets can be used during whole group instruction, small group instruction, as morning work, or as homework.

This pack also includes a teacher guide that features tips on how to use these passages in your classroom, an anchor chart for teaching theme, and a list of mentor texts to teach the skill.
