End of the School Year Freebies!

May 10, 2015


It's hard to believe the end of the school year is almost here!  This year has seemed to go by quite fast.  I wasn't sure May was ever going to get here during the months of January, February, and March, but here we are now in May, and it's going fast!

My afterschool tutoring group has recently been working on identifying Main Idea and Theme, specifically CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.3.9 - Compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters (e.g., in books from a series). 

To help my students understand what theme is, I used this little acronym I've seen all of the Internet: THEME = THE Message.  The kids thought this was so neat, and I found it really helped them remember what Theme is and how it differs from the main idea.
