Students are working very hard on our character study unit. During our read aloud, Bridge to Terabithia, by Katherine Paterson, students have been making observations about positive and negative character traits in the characters. Then, students have been supporting their thinking with text evidence.
Students are also practicing this skill in their independent reading books.
One of the students in the class said, “It’s important to think about characters because it helps us understand what we read.”
Check out some of our classroom charts the students have been using during the unit.
