I love this teaching-perspective opportunity!
With so many unique characters each having their own storyline, this book is perfectly suited for tracking character traits and themes throughout the story. I recently came across a blog post by Kristine Nanini from Young Teacher Love (click HERE to read this wonderful blog post!) in which she assigned students different characters of a book, and then posted chart paper with character names in boxes, and had students track character traits. The photos Kristine posted of students adding sticky notes to the boxes looked so engaging that I think I would like to try that sort of tracking activity with this book, too!
|Students write character traits on sticky notes. They can change them or add to them throughout the book.|
