This is an engaging lesson connecting the treasured novel Because of Winn-Dixie and character traits. There is a poster explaining what character traits are as well as a list of common character traits. The character traits list has a large white boarder so it can easily be trimmed and glued into a reading interactive notebook for future reference. Included you will find a set of 12 cards that tell something a character said or did in the book. These cards will generate excellent conversations about character traits and lend themselves to the discovery that character traits can change over time. The cards are ready to be printed, cut, and laminated. The layout will maintain the colorful boarders after cutting. Happy teaching!
