I love how this teacher has words to describe both outside and inside words to describe Officer Buckle. I love this book. Offices Buckles, Character Analysis, Languages Art, Character Traits, Third Grade, Community Helpers, Anchors Charts, Character Development, 2Nd Grade

Fletcher talks about how creating characters with realistic characteristics is important. This pin I believe it's just perfect, it describes the different point Fletcher described in the text. We have to imagine the facial expressions, how they talk, how they feel and even put a name that goes along with the characteristics of your character.
Teaching characterization Have students use the book to draw a picture of the character. Then they add speech bubbles to show the characters point of view and thoughts. I couldn't find this on the blog, but the picture and explanation above should be enough...what a great idea!
