PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file contains two posters. I use this when I teach students how to identify themes in fiction. The posters contain about twenty possible themes that might be found in passages and books.

I use a cupcake analogy to teach the concept of theme. I choose the analogy of theme-filled cupcakes because it is such a great visualization that students can associate with the definition of theme. Like the crème filling in a cupcake, you usually can’t see the theme explicitly stated in a story. Rather, it’s the “hidden message” in the story.

My hope is that when my students see the word “theme” in the future (perhaps even on a standardized test!), they will recall this experience of making “theme-filled cupcakes” and remember that they need to determine the hidden message in the story.
