Character Trait Frames


We have been learning about character traits for a few weeks now and I honestly think the best way to teach them is to have the students describe themselves and their friends and family using the character trait words.  I got the idea of having the students make character trait 'frames' to help describe themselves.  We simply took a large piece of white construction paper and cut a large hole in the middle.  Then we titled the frame and wrote colorful character traits around our frames.  And Ta-Da...







The kids LOVED them!  Hope you do too!  
Happy Monday Night!

  1. This is creative! I would love to know where you got lessons on this from. I attempted it a few weeks back but wasn't sure on some of the details. This is a super creative idea. Thank you!

  2. I don't think I got it from somewhere - I just thought of it. I might have seen something 'like' it, and tweaked it for my lesson. No details really - Just a fun craft with character traits! Love your blog btw :)

  3. This is wonderful. Teaching character traits to first graders can be tricky, but I think this will work. Thanks!
