-A leveled list of 137 character trait words
-137 character trait Word of the Week worksheets
-137 character trait Word Wall display
I have the words listed into 7 levels, because our 3-6 LA team introduces students to a set of words for the school year to help expand student vocabulary. They are introduced to different words for each grade level.
I introduce students to a new word every week. They complete these worksheets with their morning work -- They complete the requirements for each day. Students keep these in a binder to reference all year.
I like to switch it up and have the students act out the words instead of always writing what a character would say or do for a given character trait word. I am amazed with their responses and how much they enjoy this. I always let them share with their peers.
I also display the words each week on a bulletin board. This way, we can always go back to the character trait word and discuss it if it fits a particular character we are reading about.
Even if we do not complete one of the words as a Word of the Week, I still display some of the other character trait words on our Word Wall. This is an interactive activity, because I have students stick up sticky notes if a character displays a particular character trait. I let students stick up notes for class novels, read alouds, and their reading group books.
