Tying Up Comprehension with Character Traits

Hey y'all! I wanted to show you a quick peek into my newest comprehension pack: Tying Up Comprehension with Character Traits.  It includes a total of 12 engaging activities which includes 4 extension craftivities for specific read alouds. I will show you the read alouds in just a bit, but first let's look at the activities included

Here's a look at the activities:
Last year, I used sticky notes to introduce inside and outside character traits and it was such a great visual for my little learners.  We used 2 different colors of sticky notes- one color for inside traits, and one color for outside traits. 

Another activity is Character Gallery. This is great for the beginning of the year when discussing what makes us unique!

This activity might just be my very favorite one in the pack. Who doesn't love superhero capes? Again, another activity that could be used at the beginning of the year when celebrating differences. 

The next 2 activities can be used as an extension activity for any mentor texts used when teaching character traits. 

Here's a look at a few more activities that are included. I will let the pictures do the talking ;)

Now, let's look at the read aloud activities. 
First up, David Goes to School. Included is a directed drawing as well as inside and outside traits to sort. I shared this activity last year here

Next, is Sloppy Joe. Have you read this book? It is such a wonderful book that could also be used for back to school. 

Also included is The Paper Bag Princess. Students identify and sort her inside and outside traits. 

Last, is Ruby the Copycat. Such a phenomenal book for teaching others to be themselves. Love, love, love this book! 
I didn't realize until after putting this pack together that all the read alouds can be used at the beginning of the year when teaching acceptance, school rules, and celebrating differences.
