Make learning theme, central idea, and motif engaging and hands-on in this fun sorting game that will quite literally help students sort out the differences among the terms. The Theme, Central Idea, Motif Sorting Game includes each term and definitions, and eighteen examples for students to sort into the proper categories. After students sort, they fill out their own theme, central idea, and motif cards based on their reading novel. An exit ticket will help to anchor student learning, asking them to identify the theme of their novel in a short response style question. Rubric and easy-to-follow instructions for photocopying and implementation are provided.
