Scholastic's "Common Themes in Books" handout. There are also quick graphic organizers to use as well with your lessons. Theme is usually a tough one for my kiddos to grasp the first time around.

This would be a fun bulletin board for the library in your room. Each phone could have a theme in bold at the top and then list books within the library under its theme. The students can go up to the board and look for a theme that they want to read about that day and pick out a book under that theme.

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.
