This bundle includes everything you need for teaching an entire unit on THEME for 10% less than buying items individually!
Items within the zip folder:
1) A powerpoint
that is colorful, adorable, and includes real-life connections, helping your students retain a thorough understanding of theme. Includes:
-22 editable slides with animation
-7 video clips, each with a multiple choice question about theme and evidence for text evidence
-3 real-world examples, along with an open ended question for each example
-2 page student worksheet for student responses
-key to multiple choice questions
2) A fun, novel way of getting students familiar with theme terminology: a maze
Students begin at the box under the large arrow. They decide which theme BEST matches the illustration and follow their choices and continue through the maze until they reach the “END” box.
Item includes a colored and black/white version of the worksheet, along with a key, making grading quick and painless! (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Theme-Maze)
3) This game
is just like the popular app that all your kids are playing on their phones!!
The powerpoint has 17 different "theme" slides. Each slide has four pictures representing a common theme. Kids have to use their inferencing skills to figure out the theme that describes all 4 pictures. (Answers included after each slide)
*Slideshows are editable so that you can adjust the difficulty level of the vocabulary, if needed.
*Can be played:
1) individually as a daily warm-up for over 3 weeks
2) in pairs or groups as a game
3) as a new version of HANGMAN
4) printed as a file folder activity
