We created this product after finding a need for a simple mini unit to teach (and reteach) character traits. We wanted to have something that the students could use at the time we introduced the concept, but then also have tools to use later for any books they read on their own.
This mini unit can be used with any book to boost reading comprehension.
When using this mini unit, it is important to emphasize the fact that the readers are being “detectives;” they are looking for clues to help them understand character traits.
This mini unit includes multiple graphic organizers to understand and apply determining character traits; including picking one character in a book to describe (both at one point in the book, as well as, at the beginning and the end) and picking two characters in a book to describe. There is a tool readers can use to help them remember how to find character traits and a list of character traits that will come in handy! Also included is a Scoot game with short stories in which students determine the character trait of the character in the scenario.
