This Bundle Includes the Understanding Characters AND Character Trait Activities
The author tells us about a character by what the character says and does. By paying attention to characters; what they say and do, we can learn about characters’ thoughts and feelings. Describing characters’ words, actions, and feelings will help us understand personalities and help explain why they act the way they do. Understanding a character helps us connect to them and relate to them as if they were a real person. It makes the story more interesting.
