The free slideshow above can help you teach your 3rd grade, 4th grade, or 5th grade students how to determine the theme of a story. It includes short reading passages where students have to choose the best theme, activities to help students practice distinguishing between the theme and main idea, and writing activities to reinforce what students have learned.
This slideshow is best used for practice after students have already been introduced to the theme.
If you are looking for activities to introduce theme or if your students are really struggling, check out these activities and ideas to help you teach theme.
