I have five separate literature circles going on among my students this month and going up to winter break. All students will be writing a character analysis essay based on one dynamic and one static character from the novel they are reading in these literature circles.
This week's metaphor (which they'll see tomorrow morning) is a reminder of the terms dynamic and static characters. Enjoy!
If you're interested in the five lit circles going on with my kids right now, here they are: My sixth graders are reading Animal Farm, my eighth graders are reading Rocket Boys, and my seventh graders had the choice of a Steinbeck novel (Tortilla Flat) or two novellas (The Red Pony & The Pearl)
