Character Traits

One of my favorite times of the day is shared reading or read aloud time. We are reading books related to our study of American Principles and Rights. I connected it to Diversity too as we look at all the immigrants who came to this country in search of freedom and liberty. I read these two books: Henry's Freedom Box and When Jessie Came Across the Sea and my students were touched by both. Afterwards we took a look at these two characters and charted their character traits with the proof from the book. I had them glue a chart of characteristics in their reading logs. We are going over the meanings of them a few at a time each day. A great follow up would be to compare/contrast these characters with a Double Bubble or Venn Diagram.
