This is a fun unit on Character traits. Your students will identify character traits of different monsters. They will have to infer based on the details that are given for each character. This is good practice because students will be required to identify character traits in texts and they need a background on what character traits are and how to identify them.
First read the monster posters to your students and display them where your students can see them.
Then when you are done reading all the monster posters go through each character trait and discuss what they mean. They are on the colored frames.
Then one at a time reread the different monster posters and have your students identify the character traits for each monster. (There is an answer sheet for you.)
Display the character trait cards with the monsters.
Then have your students write and create their own monsters.
Planning pages and paper are included for the monster drawing and the monster writing. Three different letter spacing available.
I like to print all the posters and character trait frames on cardstock for better results.
Your students will have a greater understanding of character traits after this lesson and they will have a great time creating their own monsters.
