Creating Characters in Creative Writing

Product Description

In creative writing, it is very important to create strong and dynamic characters. In addition, characters within a story need to have strong motivation, and their interactions with other characters need to add interest and appeal to the reader.

Included within this resource is a visual reminder to students in creative writing when it comes the time to incorporate characters in their work.

Also included is a worksheet that will guide students in creating a strong main character and a second worksheet for orchestrating dynamic and plot-driven secondary characters that will keep the reader interested until the end of the story.

Please see the preview for more details.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Buddy Reading Discussion Cards”

by Teacher Trap

2nd – 4th Grade

I made these little cards to help keep my “buddies” engaged in meaningful conversations while partner reading. I copied mine front to back on colored cardstock, laminated, chopped, hole-punched in the corner, and made little rings of questions that buddies can easily grab.

I teach my kids a pattern for buddy reading –
Partner A reads a page while B listens and follows along.
Partner B asks A a question from the ring.
Partner B reads a page while A listens.
Partner A asks B a question from the ring.

It seems to help both partners stay on task even if the other one is reading.

Thanks! If you’d like to check out my blog post about these handy cards just click the link for Teacher Trap. 🙂
