CC Standard RL.1.3 - Describe characters, settings, and major events in a story, using key details. - This post contains multiple ways to introduce character analysis to first grade students, by suggesting steps to take. First, start with defining character traits (inside and outside). This anchor chart would be a helpful reminder for students of things to pay attention to while analyzing a character.
Love teaching about character traits with this character, Camilla Cream! "A Bad Case of the Stripes," by David Shannon is a great mentor text for teaching about characters! We read the text and stopped to add traits on post its as we progressed through the story. As an added bonus, this text has a great message about kindness and staying true to yourself! #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
