Love teaching about character traits with this character, Camilla Cream! "A Bad Case of the Stripes," by David Shannon is a great mentor text for teaching about characters! We read the text and stopped to add traits on post its as we progressed through the story. As an added bonus, this text has a great message about kindness and staying true to yourself! #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
Ever asked your students to describe a character? Good, bad, nice, mean? Yes, I've had that lesson fail and I figured out what to do about it. Provide your students with a set of character traits and definitions that will have them increasing the level of their vocabulary in no time! 48 character traits, activity sheets, lesson ideas, great for poster, bulletin board, word of week, and more!
