Identifying Theme:

Theme: theme is the overall message of a story. (Moral or lesson being taught)

Theme should not be ONE world. Theme is ONE sentence.

Examples of themes:
-Never give up
-Do good to others and have good done to you
-Home is where the heart is

How can we find the conflict? Ask yourself the following questions:

What were the conflicts?
What were the resolutions?
How did the characters change?
What did the characters learn?
