RL.3.3 Describing Characters



This RL.3.3 Describing Characters unit is packed full of standards-based lesson plans, professionally Lexiled passages, and activities to use while you are teaching the standard RL.3.3. If you are not teaching Common Core, then the unit is still valuable to use when teachings students how to describe characters, using character traits, character feelings, and character motivations. It also touches on how the characters react to certain events and how this affects the story.

*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The passages and graphic organizers are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF. (The lesson plans, small group activities, and assessments are not digitally converted at this time.)*
