Developing Characters with the Fiction File!
I posted my Fiction File yesterday, and I couldn't wait to use the new posters with my kiddos! We spent some time talking about flat and round characters, and the kids made a chart to sort characters they found during independent reading into the two categories. They will continue to add to the anchor chart throughout the week as they find more examples. The students are currently working on developing round characters in their realistic fiction stories. So far, I am blown away by their understanding of the author's craft! Yay!
