Thinking about Theme and Making Connections

My students have been reading Bridge to Terabithia and using it to discuss emerging themes and to make connections. We have also spent time analyzing songs, such as the one below, to identify theme and connect to the books we are reading.

Use these graphic organizers with your students to analyze subtext and use it to identify possible themes.

Use these graphic organizers to track common themes among fiction texts and make text-to-text connections.
