PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this literature resource to teach 25 basic character traits that can be incorporated into any story or character (imagined or real). The literature resource comes with a 25 slide animated PowerPoint to teach each character trait by showing an example through description and a photograph. There are also 25 posters to hang in your classroom. Enhance the learning with the 5 printables that can be used as worksheets to practice character traits.

Animated PowerPoint
Start with this animated PowerPoint to teach 25 basic character traits. Each slide starts with an example of this trait in action. Then a photograph shows the character trait. Finally, the trait is revealed. But wait, 4 synonyms are also introduced for each character trait. To keep students motivated, sounds have been added (can be turned off by just lowering volume). The visuals and examples are great for developing and expanding student vocabulary and provide comprehensible input for English Language Learners.
