We studied Theme last week in Reading.  I must admit that I borrowed a few ideas from My Life as a 5th Grade Teacher ... the anchor chart was NOT my original idea.  We glued a foldable into their reading spirals defining what theme IS and IS NOT.  I also copied some questions that help find the Theme from Study Island for them to use as a reference also.  Finally, we spent 2 days reading Berenstain Bear books and finding the Theme and giving 2 examples from the book that supported it.  They thought that was a blast and I am excited about the papers that I have had time to look at... Sometimes they blow me away! :) I actually had a Marvelous Monday and hope you did too!! :)
