Product Description
This "I have... Who has...?" contains 30 cards related to character traits, motives, and feelings. This is a great activity if you are looking for an opportunity to engage your entire class!

Each card describes a character that a student might encounter in a book, and asks about his/her character traits, possible motives, or probable feelings. This is a great vocabulary building opportunity, because kids encounter words such as "optimistic", "pessimistic", "mischievous", and "ambitious".

An example card for a character trait says, "Who has a character trait for a character who stands up for a friend who is being bullied?" The answer card is "I have loyal".

An example card for a possible motive says, "Who has a possible motive for a character who pretends he is sick in the morning so he doesn't have to go to school?" The answer card is "Jason is supposed to present a big speech, but he didn't finish preparing for it."

An example feeling card says, "Who has a probable feeling for a character in a book who just found out that his sister won $500 in a contest?" The answer card is "jealous".

This set includes 17 character trait cards, 8 motive cards, and 4 feelings scenarios. This set addresses CCSS Reading Literature 3.3 and 4.3.

These cards always take a few extra minutes to get through the first time. I always time my students, and then let them go through them a second and possibly third time to try to beat their record!

An answer key is included. A direction page is also provided.
