After reading the story, invite students think about how they would describe the main character. Read the story again, asking students to focus on evidence of the characteristics they have identified. Encourage them to use both the words and the images. This can be done as a whole group using an anchor chart or in partners/small groups with students jotting evidence during the read-aloud. Alternatively, groups of students can be assigned to describe different characters and gather evidence before sharing their findings with the class.
