Exploring Theme Paper Bag Book
Teaching theme can be tricky, but with this hands-on theme project your students will be ENGAGED as you explain what theme is, how it's different from main idea, and as they discover common themes in literature.
HOW IS THE PAPER BAG BOOK ORGANIZED?
This project includes before, during, after activities that you can use with a variety of books. It works beautifully for strategy groups, in guided reading, as a work station activity, for test prep review, or as an at home project. Students write in detail about the difference between theme and main idea, sort examples, work on guiding questions, explore theme in multiple texts, and explain their learning. You can use it as guided practice or as an assessment too.
