I included the graphic above to show how to compose a theme statement using the three steps given here. I think this handy fill-in-the-blank format to writing a theme is almost fool-proof for kids in middle grades and above.
3 Steps to Write a Theme Statement:
1) Select an important TOPIC the book includes. Topic ideas include: freedom, love, trust, death, forgiveness, and many others. (This topic is often called an abstract concept.)
2) Begin the theme statement by listing the book genre, the name of the book, and author. (See graphic above to help you begin the sentence.)
3) Now finish the statement from above by adding what the author REVEALS about the topic.
