We have been reading almost all nonfiction since our return from Christmas break but this week we will return to fiction. I need to teach my students how to identify the theme of the texts they read. I am planning on introducing theme as THE MEssage and showing my students a PowerPoint that I found online. I also will be using some of Peter H. Reynolds's books like ish and The Dot. Plus I have a couple of books on hold over at Barnes and Noble ready for pick up-Enemy Pie and The One. In the years past I have used Kevin Henkes's mice books and Amazing Grace. I am curious do you have any books that you like to use to teach theme? Please let me know if you have a great "must use" books!!!
