This is a lesson plan to help readers connect with characters, through the use of character traits. This includes a plan, a student checklist, a structured summary planning sheet, a graphic organizer for traits, and a large list of character traits.

My students are LOVING this activity! It's a great springboard for talking about student traits, along with other reading elements. I've adapted this for some students, by having them write a summary using the character traits and examples from the text.

After students have read a story, I typically have them do some sort of written book review. Upon completing this, they can choose a book activity to work on. The character collage is a great way to “sell” your book to your classmates! It’s also an important way for students to focus on one character, while choosing appropriate descriptive words. This activity appeals to students on many levels: allows for creativity, has sensory elements, is literally “hands on”, and is a performance task for characterization traits.

This could certainly be modified to the younger grades (K and 1) and it could be adapted for older students. Instead of using character traits, students may be required to use traits with specific evidence from the text, or students may incorporate figurative language elements (eg. write similes for your character).
