Print and digital versions available for some resources!
  • PDF
  • Google™ Slides

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.

3. Templates

  • 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!
