These digital reading response slides are perfect for students to practice analyzing characters! They can be used with any fiction text. Perfect for work in the classroom or Distance Learning.

Students will practice identifying the importance of repeated objects, traits and and habits. They will notice unexpected behaviour, understand character motivations and obstacles. Students will understand that characters are complicated, they will make connections with characters and practice describing a character’s internal and external traits. Students will make inferences about how characters are feeling, and understand that all characters have positive and negative traits. Finally, students will use lessons that characters learn to help determine the theme of books.

These reading response slides can be used with ANY fiction text. They are designed to be used with books at the upper elementary level (grades 4, 5, 6).

These slides are great for independent practice after skills have been introduced in a mini lesson. They are also great for strategy groups!

If you want to use these slides for distance learning, I suggest first introducing the skills in mini lessons as a part of your Reading Workshop. Then students can practice each skill with the slide. If students want to practice the skill more than once, they can easily duplicate the slides to make more! (right click - duplicate slide)
