The past two weeks we have worked on RL.2, identifying the theme in a piece of literature. The first week we focused on finding the theme of a poem. I pulled down my copy of Giant Children by Brod Bagert and read aloud some silly poems to my kiddos. They LOVED them!
Thanks to my sister I have a signed copy of Gian Children! She went to a PD several years ago and brought this autographed book back for my class and I....isn't she awesome!
He is another cute poem you could use for theme.
A FREEBIE for you! You can use this for poetry or literature...enjoy! Tomorrow I will share how I taught theme last week using Wonder and other great resources!
