The "Three-Dimensional Bone Structure" featured in this digital file is a simple, user-friendly tool that helps children develop well-rounded characters for their Writing Workshop projects and helps children take notes on the characters in the books they read during Reading Workshop. The "Three-Dimensional Bone Structure" works particularly well during "Edge-of-Seat Fiction" and "Realistic Fiction" units in Writing Workshop and "Character Study" and "Story Elements" units in Reading Workshop. The three parts, or bones, on this reproducible graphic organizer help children go beyond simple physical descriptions of hair color and eye color and address important "mind features" and "family features" as well.
