Character traits anchor chart 3rd

Enhance your students' understanding of character traits with these creative anchor chart ideas. Help them develop a deeper comprehension of characters and their personalities in a fun and engaging way.
Teaching students about character traits beyond the standard 'kind and mean' can be challenging, especially in the upper grades where not only are students expected to identify specific character traits, but also discuss how events in the story change the character, and how the character impacts the plot.  The good news is that providing them with scaffolds and a variety of examples can really impact their knowledge of character traits.

This is a culmination of my own anchor charts, plus the best anchor charts that I could find online. This is a great place to find effective charts that get to the heart of what you are teaching in workshop. If you have a favorite chart that you'd like to add, please contact me! Also, if I have not properly given credit for an anchor chart, let me know so that I can fix it.
