Teaching Theme in 5th Grade RL.5.2

I finally feel like I'm starting to understand 5th grade curriculum and actually know what I'm teaching now. For the past two months I have been so lost---but the more I read and study CCSS I have a better understanding of what is going on in the 5th grade world. With that in mind we started on identifying theme this week or as I would like to call it... RL5.2.
For theme this week we introduced it by looking at Story Line Online. I was observed during this lesson and it went PERFECTLY. I passed out post-it notes for students to write down their thoughts of the theme during the video. After they were finished they "turned and talked" with their partner to discuss their understanding of the theme. (I really liked this video that facilitates reading discussion, excellent example) While they are watching the video I moved around the room to check understanding on "theme"- is their theme too narrow, is it correct etc. I use a class checklist system to identify students who are struggling with this to pull during RTI time.

Moving on..
 

 
We are also looking at these two books for interactive read alouds (This is the book list we use). We are doing balanced literacy in my building and I'm really falling in love with it. The more I do with it the more I enjoy reading with my students. I have such a good group of 5th graders and they LOVE to learn. These are the books I do my guided practice with at the beginning of the week. I'm doing the I do, we do, you do model.


 

For shared reading, we are using THESE task cards.
 
 
 
This is what we are using for homework. I think I will only use the multiple choice parts of the packet though. I bought the whole year...here. 

In guided reading (small group instruction) we are using

I am loving that you are one skill ahead of my district! We start teaching theme in a couple weeks, have to teach the story mouton first. I love The Other Side. Also Smoky Night is a great book.
Enjoy your balanced literacy time!

We did that story roller coaster unit this summer. Id share it with you but I didn't like it. Good luck with that though! Show a roller coaster youtube video. My kids loved that!

Theme is so hard for kids. I feel like only the "high" students are good at identifying it in grade level text. I dumb it down a lot with lower level books. That always seems to help! Good luck:)
