This freebie will guide you through the four main steps you'll use to have students gather clues and figure out the theme in a mentor text, Cloudette.
This is a great text to use as a mentor for theme because the character's traits, motivations, and changes all line up beautifully. It's important to scaffold students' thinking about a complex idea like theme by providing them a structured approach.
In this product, you'll find an instructional procedure, sample anchor chart, graphic organizer to support student thinking with an answer key, and a chart of common themes to help kids narrow down the theme of stories they read!
