FREE! This activity makes a perfect independent or small group center for students to practice identifying theme in literature. Students will read fables and poems and select the best theme. Then, the students will read a drama and determine the theme and events from the text that support the theme.
Poems coming home from school are a great resource for families. Learn the poem together and play around with altering it. Feed in facts - "I have a little reptile..", and your child's own knowledge - "I have a great big dog..."
