Winterhouse Challenge

Challenge Summary:

  1. Choose a main character to make an image of (see details below.)
  2. List 3 inner personality traits (explained on “Our Day -Monday, March 23)  your character has and explain how the character demonstrated each trait in the story.
  3. Take a photograph of your image, post it with the traits on your blog
  4. This is due on or before April 8.

When we began reading Winterhouse on January 21 and in about forty days we finished our most exciting read-aloud to date.  In the first week we began sorting characters.  We were wondering who the main characters were and who the secondary characters were and who were the extras.  Here’s our list from that first week.  I would add a character and I would move a few around.  How about you?  Gracella hadn’t appeared in the story when we made our list and we listed Freddy as a secondary character then.  I think the main characters are: Elizabeth, Norbridge, Freddy, Leona and Gracella.


Your challenge, should you accept it, (and I hope you will!!!❤️❤️❤️ – 🥺🥺🥺 Did you notice I am pleading?😀) is to choose a main character from Winterhouse, create an image of that character and list 3 inner personality traits your character has.  Support those claims with evidence.  You do that by explaining how your favorite character showed those traits through their thoughts, words and actions in the book.

You can create your character image in any 3-D or 2-D way you’re inspired to use – play-doh, water colors, model magic, sewing, markers, foil, pipe cleaners, crayons, a puppet, collage, any combination…

Once you’ve created your character, take a photograph, add it to a blog post (or send it to me in an email and I will) with your favorite character’s name.

Along with that, please list 3 inner personality traits your character had and how they showed each trait through their thoughts, words and/or actions in the story.

This should be completed on or before Wednesday, April 8th.

Happy Creating!

    • Hi Edward,
      I wondered about this…scroll down below the picture of the book cover. I think it explains it there. If you’re still not certain, please ask again. I may need to make the expectations clearer.
      Thanks for checking.
      👊🏻Mrs. Eaves
