    Wonderful to increase vocabulary and character traits. I like that it’s quick and repetitive.

  4. Melissa T

    great year round resource!

  5. Tiffanie S

    This is so thorough and well-thought out. Character traits are one of those tricky concepts and you’ve made them very easy to implement and discuss. I can’t wait to use this when school starts.

  6. Delshire E

    Love this! Very great resource and will you for teaching vocabulary as well!

  7. Risoli’s Reading Room 

    This exactly what I was looking for to use for character traits in Sept with mt thirdies.. Thanks for creating and sharing..

  8. Dorothea B

  15. Lori M

    This is awesome! I am teaching the 8 keys of excellence and fits well with the program! Thanks for all of the hard work.

  16. Ruby S

    Great resource, can be used with any literature

  17. Karen B

    This was a great find! Often when we talk in class about character traits my kids struggle to get past the physical, and then they get into the most basic of emotions. This is a great way to introduce the positive and negative traits characters and people can demonstrate. I printed all the poster pages to make a booklet so the kids can use it as a reference when doing trait work since we don’t have a lot of wall space!

  18. Stacey S

    Thanks.

  19. Sheila M

    Excellent – Just starting a Character Education program school-wide – these resources will be very useful for introducing our students to these wonderful traits. Thank you for your hard work and time in developing them; I appreciate how much work you put into these.

    This is such a great product! I can’t wait to use it with my third graders!

  220. Just Jill Designs 

    Super!

  221. Kristi P

    Have been using this as the basis for an online creative writing co-op with parents and kids of varying ages. It has been great to guide our group discussions. We also tie in an activity that further studies the characteristic (like a book or game or interactive worksheet). Then we finish with a writing assignment that somehow connects to the characteristic. It has been awesome! All three families love the worksheets!

  222. Teaching With Mrs Wiswell 

    GREAT jam packed resource. I have been reading a book that aligns with the character trait! It’s been great!

  223. Carlie F

    This resource was a great addition to our character study unit! It allowed my students to expand their vocabulary while also learning new descriptive words to describe others. My students thoroughly enjoyed filling out the organizers by reflecting and applying the new words within class discussions!

    Great resource!

  225. Dawn V

    This is the perfect resource to fill the hole our curriculum had!

    This is a great systematic way to teach and reinforce character traits.

  232. Inspirational LearningSeptember 8, 2018

    Love this product! Not only is this a great way to improve students vocabulary but it helps students evaluate their own behaviors. Then they also compare their own behavior to characters in books.

  233. BuyerSeptember 30, 2015

    Fabulous resource! I love the idea of extending some activities as homework, so that families can be involved!
