Description

Theme Task Cards: This resource contains 16 task cards - each task card contains a short narrative. After reading each passage, students are tasked with identifying the theme of each narrative.

Included are TWO options for student responses:

1) Students write a sentence describing the narrative's theme.

2) Students complete a multiple-choice worksheet, identifying the correct theme from 4 choices.

********This resource is available in three formats:

  1. Traditional Printables- Print the PDF and distribute paper task cards and recording sheets.
  2. Easel Activity- With this digital format, there is one task card per slide. Students can complete this activity on a device. Students read each passage and determine the theme. Then, they type their answer in the text box on each cupcake.
  3. Easel Assessment- Students complete this self-grading quiz on a device, as well. After reading each passage, students select the theme from a list of four possible answer choices. With this option, the teacher chooses whether or not his or her students receive immediate feedback.
