We have gone a little character crazy in my room. We went over Character Traits which I talked a little bit about HERE, but we have been going strong learning about characters even more *Disclaimer: Many of the resources/activities we did are paid resources, so I talk about them in this blog post more than I prefer to most of the time. However, there is a Facebook Fan FREEBIE included, too!
Then, we related it to our current novel, which is Rules by Cynthia Lord (the kids love the novel every year, and so do I!). Each student had to make a tree map with character traits for one of the characters in the novel. As they read, they took notes on sticky notes showing evidence of certain character traits, and then transferred them to their “interactive” tree map.
