Includes a resource to help students understand theme vs. main idea, a planning sheet for their tent and 2 different templates for the theme analysis tent!:
1. Theme Resource
Students often struggle with understanding the difference between a main idea
(theme topic) and the theme (a message or lesson the author tries to teach the reader through the main idea).
That is why I included a resource that helps students identify a theme topic and then use that topic to create a theme statement (message/lesson of the text)!
2. Planning Sheet
Tasks students with identifying a theme topic, creating a theme statement, and identify characters and events that relate to the theme, to help students prepare for what they will include in their theme analysis text.
– Template one focuses on events that relate to the theme. There are two versions.
– Template two focuses on characters that relate to the theme.
Each version comes with a copy that either focuses on students analyzing a theme topic OR a theme statement!
