Product Description
This Graphic Organizer was designed to be an in-depth introduction to my first grade students about Characters. I wanted them to create a deep connection to the concept of characters by imagining what they would be like if they were a character in a book. In Kindergarten, the main focus behind describing characters is to identify who they are, and know that they are the people or animals that the story is about. In First Grade, students are expected to know that characters have actions, and thoughts, and feelings, and words.

The way that I will use this worksheet in my classroom is by telling my students to imagine that an author has decided to write a book starring them as the main character. The students will design what they look like, and write what they say, how they feel, what they think, and what they like to do. My students will complete this activity as an exit slip. This worksheet could easily be used as a homework assignment or in a center/guided reading group.

Another way I imagine you could use this worksheet is by telling the students to pretend that they are a character from a story they read, and fill it out from their point of view.

This worksheet was was created for CCSS.1.RL.7, which is extremely similar to LAFS.1.RL.3.7 (if you live in Florida like me). This standard is all about "us[ing] illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events."

I hope that this worksheet is helpful to you in your classroom.
