Teaching Theme: Anchor Chart- I love the idea of using anchor charts! This one in particular seems to be really helpful. Students always have a hard time trying to figure out the theme of what they are reading, especially when you are first introducing how to do that! I think that this activity would make it a little bit easier for them to do on their own.
This theme topic handout is included in the Themes in Literature Unit by The Teacher Next Door. Finding themes in literature becomes easier with practice and soon your students will be seeing themes in every book. Fun! $
