Graphic Organizers Character Analysis Essay

Product Description

Character Analysis Essay Graphic Organizer

I created this product to use while writing character analysis essays in my 5th grade classroom. It could easily be used with younger students as well with additional teaching and support.

This graphic organizer is to be used after students read a story and match character traits to the main events in a story. They will need explicit instruction in identifying character traits before completing this organizer.

After learning about character traits, students can use this organizer to identify different character traits present in one character throughout a story.

This organizer can then be used to model ways to turn their ideas into paragraphs, resulting in a complete character analysis essay.

Character Analysis & Transformation Notebooking Page

These free printable pages can be used as notebooking pages or as graphic organizers during the prewriting stage.

Have your child write down three character traits of someone in a work of literature or from history. Then demonstrate those traits to be true with the use of specific evidence. If you choose to, you can then take the ideas on this graphic organizer and expand them into a full character analysis essay.

On the second page, the emphasis is on a dynamic character — one that changes in some way in a work of literature. Again, this page can stand alone as a notebooking page or can be the start of a composition about a character.

This is not the first time I’ve shared printables about character here on The Notebooking Fairy, but it is a more advanced treatment than the other pages offer. For more free printables on this theme see

As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.
