I use this chart with my EL students. I provide them with a list of character traits and after reading a story, we can fill this out together, in pairs or as independent work (awesome as a reading center). The most fun part? They get to report back ORALLY what they have found! The chart provides them with the sentence structure, so they get to use academic language while practicing speaking skills. Don't you just love that?! I do.
I know (name of character) is (character trait) because the text says (evidence from the text).
