Character Traits with Anchor Texts

March 11, 2018 No Comments

While discussing with my young students different character traits, it became clear that there were many terms that they were not familiar with. So this year I decided to pair some traits with characters in our read aloud stories. After reading and discussing the story, I ask the children to give me two or three words that describe the character on the inside. Then I print a copy of the book cover and add the terms to a bulletin board.

I’ve created a list of 135 character traits in alphabetical order for my students to refer to whenever they are discussing characters. I added some printable short stories for guided practice.

In addition there is a generic form that students can complete on other stories they read.

The complete lessons and printables are available here.
