Character Traits in Reading
Developing our characters. We read the mentor text by Patricia Polacco, Rotten Ritchie and Ultimate Dare. We discussed how Ritchie changed from the beginning of the story to the end. Then students worked on their characters using the A-Z character traits and how they may change in the story. We created tri-folds out of them for their notebooks.
Tell about the characters in your narrative writing!
