Digging deeper into the characters who come to life in stories we love to read.

Students choose a fiction book (or books) they're interested in and as a group we discuss a number activities students can choose from to help better understand their characters.

Oh No! My book doesn’t have a hero...

A hero doesn’t have to wear a cape; they come in lots of different forms. If the fiction book has a main character, they’re likely to have a hero. 

Students will learn to

  • make strong connections with what we’re reading.

  • understand character development and its impact on the story

  • extend vocabulary and make inferences

  • read for enjoyment and build reading stamina.
