Creating Characters in Creative Writing


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 MATH LESSON – “SMART Board Tooth Tally”

by Downeast Teach
Pre-Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

This cute little Tooth Tally SMART Board file is a fun way to bring some authentic data into your classroom. It is part of my SmartBoard Math Calendar for Grades 1-3 set. When students lose a tooth, they drag an infinitely cloned tooth to either the boys’ or girls’ side of the page and update the total. This provides opportunities all month long for comparing teeth lost; boys vs. girls. The second page in the file is a place to record monthly totals, which could then be analyzed and graphed. The third page where you can make a graph, if desired. It is a blank template so you can make a variety of graphs. I cloned the teeth on this page in case you want to make a pictograph with each tooth representing a certain number of teeth lost.

If you enjoy this freebie, I would love feedback! Also, check out the complete calendar math file in my TPT store, as well as my other SMART Board products.
