- Theme: Sample Mini-Lesson Interactive Read Aloud: (must occur prior to the mini-lesson) Read aloud your favorite picture books. Mini-Lesson(s): (RL.4.2, RL.4.1, 4.10; L.4.6; SL.4.2) This seed is intended to span over multiple mini- lessons. Explain to students that when we read a story, we want to think about what the theme of a story is. Theme is what we learn from a story, themes are inferred, and themes are about the big world. Refer to any anchor charts you may have already started. Revisit the text from the interactive read aloud. Point out various places in the text that will help students determine the theme of this story. You will want to gauge students level of knowledge when determining theme of a story. As you read the story, find places in the text that help the reader understand the theme. (Suggested Text: Any Cinderella story suggested at the beginning of the unit multiple could be read to practice understanding). Guided Practice: Ask students to work together to locate other details in the text that will help to determine theme. Students will need access to the text in order to do this. If this is not possible, you may want to put the text on the document camera and walk students through the remainder of the book. Bring students back together and focus your think aloud on how all of these details in the story make you think about the theme, or the message the author is trying to convey. Explain that you can infer the author is trying to teach the reader about friendship, but not just friendship. Friendship that is happening in spite of the barriers that exist. You can infer that the theme could be friendship transcends barriers. Work Time: Students should have the opportunity to read literary text and practice looking for details that help the reader determine the theme. Students can write the title of their text and the possible theme on a post-it note and place on the newly created anchor charts. This information can be used during share time. While students are working, you will want to either circulate the room, listening to their reading, or pull small groups of students to provide focus group instruction for students who need additional support. This is also the time you would pull a guided reading group, if needed. Share: Bring students back together and refer to any of the post-it notes on the anchor chart. Does anyone have a theme you would like to share from your reading today? How did you determine the theme? Was it stated directly or did you have to infer from the authors clues? Sample Thinking Stems/Anchor Chart: What does the author want you to walk away with after you no longer have this text (poem/book/drama) in front of you? What is the theme of this story? How do you know? What other themes might there be? Is it possible for there to be more than one theme in a story? Formative Assessment Opportunities: Refer to the post-it notes students may have posted during work time. Are students showing an understanding of theme? This will give you a big picture glance. Exit slip: Explain how we determined the theme of Freedom Summer.
