The first one, I got from the very talented Meg over at The Teacher Studio

For this one, I got smart enough to pull the chart paper off (It's not easy to do the anchor charts with it tucked in the corner), and magnetize it to the whiteboard.

This week we've started off with character traits.
I continue to start teaching this with Hooway for Wodney Wat, as there is just so many traits and different characters. It's also a great one for character change and development.
Plus, the kids love it-and I hear them talking without 'r's for the rest of the day :)
I also continue to use this chart-although I may remake it next year! I used my magnet clothespins to hide the parts I didn't want them to see yet.
Joanne's awesome post-it one) together, and we talked about how a character can have a lot of different traits.
Eventually, we'll add character traits to our reading notebook.
We've also started talking about making connections, using a selection from our literacy book (but shhh! we're using it sparingly and only following it for the comprehension focus).
