These Character & Setting Cards for Beginning Writers can be used to teach the differences between characters and setting, the importance of each, and their role in stories.
These character and setting cards can be used in two fun ways:
- In Groups: A game, such as sorts and guess again.
- Individually: Print them out and have students glue them into drawing journals.
Drawing journals are imperative in my classroom. If they are in yours too, check out how I introduce guided drawing to beginning writers in this post.
