**Features 3 layouts of Meet the Characters pages. Layouts are available for 1, 2, or 3 characters. I have also printed front-to-back on many occasions for students with lots of characters in their stories.***
After writing an original piece, students can introduce their characters to the audience by creating this "Meet the Characters" activity. The students illustrate the characters in their stories and write a few sentences to describe their likes, interests, and role in the writing piece.
I always include this page with the fiction stories my students write. They are required to think more deeply about their writing and characters. Parents also enjoy seeing the creativity at conferences or posted around the room.
Reading: Students may also complete this page after reading any kind of literature for the characters present in the stories.
