The Character Charts strategy involves using graphic organizers to help students organize information about major and minor characters in a text.
Completed character charts are useful tools for writing essays and studying for tests.
At this point, send students back to their independent reading texts and ask them to think about the characters in their own books in the same way as you have been thinking about Magda.
Have students complete a character map for the main character in their independent texts, either online on the Story Map or on paper if you have printed the map in advance.
Again, this page can stand alone as a notebooking page or can be the start of a composition about a character.
This is not the first time I’ve shared printables about character here on The Notebooking Fairy, but it is a more advanced treatment than the other pages offer.
Have your child write down three character traits of someone in a work of literature or from history.
Then demonstrate those traits to be true with the use of specific evidence.
You can talk about books you have read aloud or even movies that students are familiar with to model this concept.
This understanding helps readers comprehend the text and enjoy the books they are reading.
