Our current focus for Reading is to find something called the theme of a reading text. This may not be easy at first, but with some explanation, I hope it becomes clearer. I am placing a couple of resources here for parents (or teachers) so you can see how we have addressed this in our class. Please look them over.
- Read the text!
- Create a list of topics.
- Make a ROBUST statement about one of the topics. Write complete this sentence: The author believes that...
- Mark out The author believes that, and capitalize the sentence. Keep in mind that this is what the author believes; you are free to share or not share his/her beliefs.
- Find proof in the text to support your statement. Write and complete this sentence: The text says... Copy the proof you found in the text.
