This is a stand- alone lesson to introduce children to what a character and main character is, and how we learn about them. In this lesson students will learn how to identify a character in a story and how to talk about them with a partner. You add an interactive read aloud and time for independent reading at the end of the lesson, encouraging students to identify the characters in both reading sessions. If you and your student enjoy this lesson, check out the other comprehension and reading strategies in my TpT store. Also available are the anchor charts highlighted in this lesson.
