To review inferring character traits we used Stone Fox as a read aloud. This was the second time we focused on character traits. The first was earlier in the year with The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and a Lucy Calkin’s Reading Workshop Unit.
We modeled finding character traits for a few days and then asked students to participate. You can find my lesson plans here. On day 4, as an assessment, we asked students to write a character, character trait, and evidence. This was a quick way to assess students without taking half an hour on a pencil/paper assessment.
