Character Body Book Report Projects: This is an example of a Mr. Twit character project (from “The Twits” written by Roald Dahl) that was designed by one of my students. The student wrote a description inside the vest area and glued adjectives that describe Mr. Twit. on the outside of his arms and legs. Directions and templates for assembling these fun “character body book report projects” are available on Unique Teaching Resources.
Character inference heads. We read a part of our class novel. Students then had to rewrite it in the first person from Rowan (the main character's) perspective. This piece of text is revealed inside Rowan's head when it is lifted. Underneath they wrote their own reflection about why they made some if their writing choices. I'll follow up this exercise at the end of the term once the book is complete. (Rowan of Rin by Emily Rodda)
