Alvin Ho Series by Lenore Look
Have you read the Alvin Ho Series by Lenore Look? The character is a second grade boy who is anxious about nearly everything. He experiences typical second grade events -- school, birthday parties, camping trips -- with his own defenses that often bring more consequences.
This book may be a little young in reading level for my fourth graders, but I find it is a good way to explain voice in writing. And the one-liners are hilarious.
Here is a printable character sketch form. Students list character traits and collect evidence of that character's actions and words that show that trait.
