Character Traits with Anchor Texts

October 19, 2019 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 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 printed a copy of the book cover and added the terms to a bulletin board.

I’ve created a list of 135 character traits in alphabetical order for your students to refer to whenever they are discussing characters.

I included some printable short stories for guided practice.

Like posters?

30 different traits are described in words and images. Available in color as well as ink saving black and white.

The complete lessons and printables are available here.
