This resource includes everything you need for a reading center, small group, or even partner activity for character traits and comparing character traits.
This resource was created to allow more practice in character traits. This character trait sort includes 16 quarter-page stories and 5 character trait header cards. The students will read each story and sort it under the one character trait header that the main character exhibits.
This activity will allow students to think carefully about which is the best character trait for a character. It also allows them to see how the same character trait can be demonstrated through multiple characters and plots.
After the students sort the stories, I have them take the activity a step further with an additional activity. The additional activity has the students choosing two stories with the same character trait and comparing and contrasting the characters (this can be done several times).

There is also a digital version of this resource included. The digital version has exactly the same content as the printable version, but has been redesigned for use in Google Slides.
For digital access, go to pages 3-4 of the PDF.
