Character Notebooking Pages

by Jimmie Lanley

I remember when my daughter was just a toddler that she could already identify some literary elements such as character. She knew who the “bad guy” was even at age three. Now that she’s in middle school, we are leaving behind oversimplified terms like “bad guy” or even “villain” to talk about protagonists and antagonists.

We are working through the book Figuratively Speaking by Learning Works, and came across all the different types of characters.

  • antagonist and protagonist
  • flat and round
  • static and dynamic
  • major and minor

This free printable notebooking page is a way to take notes about the different types of characters or to list the characters you identify from a work of literature. (Or you can do a little of both as my daughter did.) I hope these pages are helpful for your homeschool language arts and literature studies.

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.
