My Character Traits Reading Journal
is meant to help you introduce reading response to your first and second-grade readers. I found that with my second-grade students, it was more effective to make individual journals for each unit of study in Reader’s Workshop. It allowed me to teach my students how to respond to literature, without worrying about labeling notebooks ahead of time. The booklet includes a journal cover; four charts with words to describe inside and outside traits; six character description guided practice sheets, including a sheet for your student to describe themselves as a character; and four journal pages that can be used with any book your students are reading. These last four pages can be copied multiple times depending the amount of books and characters you want your students to analyze. I hope you will find this journal a useful addition to your Reader’s Workshop curriculum.
