This pack has a theme assessment and a summarizing assessment for students to do using their own books or a book of your choice.
Rubrics are included for both assessments and there are also examples for each assessment. The examples are done for the books The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo, Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting, and Pink and Say by Patricia Pilacco.
The summarizing assessment has students write a summary using (Somebody, Wanted, But, So, and Then) and the Theme assessment has students find a theme and provide evidence using details from the text to support their reasoning for their chosen theme.
-I also have theme posters to help students understand the different themes in books: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Theme-Posters-2155747
