Included is a list of 137 leveled character trait words. You can use this list to differentiate lessons.
Also included is 137 character trait worksheets. Students have to create their own character examples by writing what a character would “say,” “do,” or “think” for a given character trait word. There are many character trait words to choose from!
Gallery Walk- I am lucky enough to have a poster maker at my school, so I have turned some of these worksheets into posters to display in my room. I have the students use sticky notes to write their responses on and stick on the posters. This can help spark ideas for students, because they are able to see responses from their peers.
Small Group- You could assess the students’ knowledge of character traits and group them accordingly. This activity would probably work well for students who are ready to expand their thinking.
Scoot Activity- You could put students into small groups and choose worksheets for the students to work on within their groups. You can tape the worksheets to their desks, give them time to think and write, and then have them scoot to the next worksheet within their group. This will allow students to share their ideas, because they can read each other’s responses.
