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.

Her guide to notebooking—Notebooking Success—guides you through notebooking: what it is; how to use it; how it fits a Charlotte Mason, classical, and textbook curriculum; tips for getting the most educational value from it; and much more. It comes bundled with several bonuses, including a small set of generic notebooking pages that can be used with any topic.

When I first saw this on pinterest, I thought it was sort of like a goal sheet for kids to understand how to work on specific traits they want to develop in themselves. It’s really cool for evaluating characters and I’m thinking one could adapt it for self-evaluation as well. Thanks for sharing!

I really like this character Analysis worksheet you have. It visually shows that if characters have traits they need to show them through action not just by stating it.
