I'm linking up with Andrea of Reading Toward the Stars for Book Talk Thursday!
Andrea was discussing how to help your students create vivid descriptions of characters in their writing. I think a huge part of that is analyzing characters they read about to learn what great characters look like, sound like, and so on. For this, I love Amelia Bedelia ! She is so silly and fun and the kids get a kick out of her. A couple months ago, I added this post on a quick and easy but fun and useful lesson I did with my class on her. If you click the picture below which is what they came up with you can see the originial post.
Do you love Amelia Bedelia books as much as I do? What do you use to teach students how to write great characters?
Here are some of my favorite Amelia Bedelia books. Clicking on the cover takes you to see
them at Amazon.
