In addition to learning about traits, we also ask students to observe how the characters change through time. Characters are typically not static, but are rather dynamic, changing across the story plot. It is important that students record evidence during their reading, and this organizer may help your readers too. It comes from Ms. Sanchez’s Fourth Grade website. I love how it ties to the plot events.
