As you read each part of the story, STOP, think about the character traits you've learned about, and use the highlighter tool to highlight them. Use the label or pencil tool to make a note about where you found the text evidence for that character trait (ex. pg. 12) 3. Look at the character traits you highlighted to help you identify the 3 most important character traits you found text evidence for as you re-read the story. 4. Write them in the character traits spaces using the label tool. 5. Use the label tool to write a sentence on the right that summarizes the text evidence in your own words. 6.
