Character Traits Guide - This worksheet is designed to help students learn and identify character traits. It is generic so it can be used often throughout the year. Students are given a thorough list of character traits to choose from and then they are required to give a dictionary definition of that trait, a definition in their own words, a visual representation of the trait along with a description, and to describe a character from a book that demonstrates the trait. The final step is to use the character trait in a new sentence to show that they understand and can apply its meaning. It is quick and easy to assess student understanding and can be graded and sent home to keep parents aware of the reading strategies you are teaching and practicing in class.
