These materials were developed to coincide with the Grade 3 Lucy Calkins Reading Units of Study, Character Studies Unit. These handouts made it easier for my students to work on, rather than just writing in their Reader's Notebook. You can use these worksheets even if you are not using Lucy Calkins as they lend themselves well to character studies. Take your students to a higher level of thinking by comparing character traits and lessons in one story to another. These materials are great for whole class modeling, guided reading or small group work, or independent practice.
