This simple graphic organiser has been designed to support you in teaching character traits to your little learners using a combination of words and pictures. The template can be used with any picture book, guided reader or comprehension text!
The graphic organiser contains boxes where students can write or draw about their chosen character’s appearance, personality, feelings and actions.
This template could also be used if students are developing a character to use in a narrative of their own creation.
