This theme reading and writing product includes printable multiple choice task cards, google slides with two options (short answer OR multiple choice) to help your students infer the theme of the story, and 4 writing extension opportunities. Plus, there are audio files that can turn each story into a read aloud!

What’s Included:

  • 16 story task cards (includes color and black/white versions)
  • Student answer sheets (2 different formats)
  • 2 different Google Slides options (multiple choice and short answer)

Mix and match to meet the needs of all your learners!

  • The answer sheets and digital options include versions that ask students to answer in a multiple choice format or short answer.
  • The story can be listened to with the linked audio files.
  • 4 writing extensions are included that give your students a setting and characters, and then they choose a theme for their own story. You’ll love seeing their creativity!!

Theme is a challenging concept. While these cards can be used for individual practice (especially when using the multiple-choice format), you may want to consider using them with your entire class or a small group by reading each story aloud and working together to determine the theme.

Common Core Standards addressed in this set:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize the text.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.6.2 Determine a theme or central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments.

    This was so helpful because theme is difficult.

  9. Dawn S.

    I used this as a partner scoot activity. The text was appropriate difficulty for 4th grade. This resource helped my students understand that themes are universal.
