Since character traits can be difficult to teach at times, I wanted to create something that my students could connect to with character traits. These recipe cards give students a connection and engage them in the activity. They use a character's actions, thoughts, and feelings to figure out the character's character traits. They stir those components together, roll them out and serve the character traits with evidence from their organizers and literature they've read. I enlarged the recipe cards on a poster maker for the display set which they loved (anything enormous is loved :)! Regardless of the size, I have my students cut out the recipe cards when finished and add them to the Recipe Book for Character Traits so we can collect the characters' recipes all year and use as a reference! I also use the Display Banner as the Recipe Book Cover! You can use these Character Trait Graphic Organizers for small groups, whole groups, or independent work. These are also in my Reading Skills Posters pack on my TPT store if you'd like to see a huge collection of reading skills posters, organizers, game, and more!
