Describing Characters & a Freebie

I’ve been working with my first grades on using adjectives to describe characters.  They did a great job of using evidence from the books to describe their answers.  Even my lower language students were able to participate.

We read two books: Llama Lama mad at mama & Yoko.

 

 

 

 

 

First I showed students pictures of character emotions.  They shared examples of when they felt various emotions.  Then as I read the books they would identify how the character was feeling and tell why.

Get these as a part of my Illustrated Vocabulary Words

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a follow up students will fill out a graphic organizer after reading one of their guided reading books where they identify how the characters are feeling and show why.
