Product Description
Use these graphic organizers to help your second and third-grade students describe characters. Second graders use the graphic organizer to show how a character responds to an event. Third graders demonstrate how character traits influence events in the story. Use the graphic organizers with Gerald McDermott's story Coyote. Generic versions of the printables are also provided so that they can be used with any story.

How it Works
After hearing the story Coyote by Gerald McDermott, students use the graphic organizers to describe Coyote. Provided are three different versions of the graphic organizers including a generic version to use with any story. Grade 3 also has a set of graphic organizers to show cause and effect (how character traits cause the character to take action).

There are also support activities for more practice with character description:

Grade 2 students
★ Coyote Reacts: a set of 8 cards with different events in which students must infer how Coyote will respond to an event
★ Character Role Play: a set of 8 cards in which a student takes on a role of one of the characters and responds to Coyote's trouble making

Grade 3 students
★ Character Trait Cards: a set of 20 cards in which students identify a character trait based on a description

Grades 2 and 3
★ RAFT Writing Piece: Coyote's trouble-making nose writes a friendly letter
★ Character Chat: students fill in speech bubbles with dialogue as characters from the story talk with Coyote or each other
★ Character Texting: students pick an animal from the story that will send a text message to Coyote

The color cards also come in non-color versions for black and white printing.

The graphic organizers are provided as generic printables so that they may work with any story you or your students choose.
