Note: I had some concerns about this not being appropriate for 5th. This is used in my classroom with my 5th graders. However, many of my 5th grades read below grade level and this is a difficult concept for them. Many of the activities are fun and engaging enough to get the concept of theme. Then, you move on to the stories (written around a 4th grade level) to get the students to determine theme from a story. If you have an advanced group of readers, this may be too simple for them. Please ask any and all questions before buying to make sure this is the right resource for you!
