Interactive Character Traits

In reading last week we identified character traits. I absolutely LOVE teaching character traits...especially when we have activities that get us moving! 

We started our week off watching this Brain Pop Jr video. After watching the video we generated a list of words that describe different characters in books we have read throughout the year. Afterwards, I had my students tell me words that described the outside of me and the inside of me for this Sticky Traits activity. 
I wrote down the inside traits on a heart sticky note and outside traits on a regular sticky note. 

Next, my students worked in pairs to identify the inside and outside traits of their partner. 

We also created Character Capes and wrote our own traits that described us.

These were definitely our favorite activity from the week. My students wore them all day long and did not want to take them off!! 
You can find the steps on how to make these here.

We also read No, David! and completed this directed drawing of him. 

After drawing, we sorted his traits by inside and outside traits. 
You can find this David activity plus all the activities above, here.  If you previously downloaded my Tying Up Comprehension Character Traits pack, please re-download it. I have corrected the typo that was on the sorting cards.
