These theme task cards will help your students become more comfortable finding the theme of short stories! Theme is a very challenging topic. Use these cards for individual use or group discussions. You can assign all of the task cards at once or one per day. It is wonderful for group work! You can assign groups and allow a time period (average 10 minutes) for each card and then have the groups pass their cards to the new groups.
These look so cute in color but will print nicely in black and white!
