Use the included anchor charts to teach theme to your students. There are 8 short stories for students to read and determine the theme of each story. Students record answers on Scoot Recording Sheet. Teacher may place the stories around the room for students to walk around and read as a scoot activity. Another option is to have a set of stories for partners or small groups. This would also make an excellent center activity.
