I used this power point to introduce the concept of theme to my fifth graders this year.
It defines theme,
suggests strategies how a reader might identify theme,
provides a story to exemplify how themes can be found,
and lists evidence needed to support the theme.
In addition, the students are asked to brainstorm evidence to support the suggested themes for popular stories such as: Mulan, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and more.
