Focus on Characters: Miss Penny and Mr. Grubbs

In my class we are continuing our study of characters. I want to share with you another great picture book with two very contrasting characters. 

This book is also by Lisa Campbell Ernst (as I've said before- one of my favorite authors!). It is really a sweet book...

I read the story to my students and then I started the chart- but we did not fill in the words to describe the characters (we did that later). 

I gave my students the reading response activity and sent them off to illustrate and write. After giving them some time- we reconvened on the carpet and completed the chart. Then they could go back and add to their own work if they chose to. 

You can find the free printable activity here!

They loved this activity and I was really pleased with their efforts! 

Up next... Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch!

What picture books do you love to use to teach character?
