L.C. To identify the theme within a given passage of text.



Today we are going to be looking at short paragraphs and working out the theme of the paragraph. By this we mean what is the paragraphs main point the author is trying to get across.


Let's read the paragraph below. 

Whilst we read, see if you can work out what the main theme is.


My wedding day was beautiful for different reasons. I married in December. It had snowed five days before. However, it did not snow on that day. Great! The day was sunny and cold. The ceremony was a candlelight ceremony. The candles’ glow gave a impressive effect in the church. The organist played beautiful songs. The soloist sang “The Lord’s Prayer.” She sounded lovely. Then, my husband and I said our vows. We shall never forget each other’s words. Of course, there was the minister. His words inspired us. After the ceremony, we had a big party. We danced and danced and danced. The guests, bridesmaids, groomsmen, ushers, hostesses, band members, and hotel workers were very cooperative. Therefore, my wedding day was beautiful because of the weather, the ceremony, and people.
