I chose to begin the year with characters and character traits. I absolutely love Amanda's Character Traits unit! Using the terms inner and outer traits has changed my life! So easy for them! I am using our first author of the month, Kevin Henkes, and it is just perfection! I alternate minilessons between our basal (Iris and Walter and Henry and Mudge stories) and Kevin Henkes mouse books. All are so good for talking about characters. We even did character traits for Lady Liberty on 9/11
