Product Description

This is a great resource when teaching theme. Theme is often a difficult concept for students, but this graphic organizer walks students and teachers through figuring out what the theme of a story is.

First, the students brainstorm topics of a story (friendship, family, unconditional love, kindness, etc.)

Then, the students decide on which topic the story is MOSTLY about.

Next, the students write what the author wants them to know about that topic. (They cross out "the author wants us to know" and then they have their theme! :)

Last, they collect evidence from the text to support their theme.

This graphic organizer can guide students to creating a paragraph(s) about the theme of a text.
