Wonderful library lesson! Great back to school activity. Understanding character traits is an essential literacy skill for students. Recognizing and making inferences about behaviors associated with certain character traits is not always intuitive for our students; therefore, they need lots of opportunities to practice. Acquiring the vocabulary with which they are able to describe character traits is critical as well. In addition, they also need to learn to cite evidence to support their answers, and these task cards are designed to meet all these needs and more!
These 24 task cards are the ideal tool to help your students become skilled at understanding how to identify character traits. Each task card features a short passage describing someone. Students are asked to identify the character trait being described and to give support for their answers. An answer key is provided; however, any answer for which a student can justify and provide evidence should be accepted, since so many character traits are synonymous. I have provided a recording sheet, but if your students like to write a lot to justify their answers then they will probably do better with notebook paper!
To save colored ink, I always print my task cards out in grayscale, but I have included a second set with a colored background.
