All About the Characters!

During our first mini-lesson today we learned about characters in a story. We first talked about what we already knew about characters and most of the students only were familiar with characters in movies or television shows. After discussing what made those characters in movies, we realized characters are also found in books! We discussed how in order to consider a character they have to talk, move or do something important in the story. For example, a tree in the background is not a character unless it is talking in the story. We then read a Halloween story about Clifford and wrote down any characters we found while reading! Afterward, we discussed what made those people/animals characters.
