Learning About Characters

We have been learning about characters.  A character is a person, animal or object come to life in a movie or book.

We have used several different methods to extend our learning:
  • character webs: all the things we know about the character
  • venn diagrams: comparing similarities and difference between characters
  •  predictions: predicting character actions
  • & thinking about why we like certain characters.
Below, we wrote about our favorite character in the book, The Falling Leaves by Steve Metzger.

What I liked about my favorite yellow leaf was when the wind blew the leaf away.

I am drawing Red Oak.  He falls in the mud.

Purple Beech
I am Purple Beech because I like mud.
