Read the book to the students. Review the character map and the categories with the children. Reread Flossie to the children having them listen to details to use on the Character Map. Pair the children and give them the Character Map to complete. Have them write the character’s name under the character icon.
With the students participating, complete the Character Map with the class showing the pictures and/or reading the text that relate to the each section of the map. This book lends itself very well to this activity as the text is simple and illustrations are wonderful. We have used this activity with students in K-3, modified according to the needs of the grade level.
Below are two samples from second grade students.
Below are class generated samples.
After the map has been completed with the students, have them work with you as a class or continue to work with a partner depending on skill levels, to write a short paragraph describing Flossie using the Character Map. We have found it helpful to number the categories and have the children check off or highlight the information they have used as they go along.
