Teaching Point of View

We have been busy working on point of view, and most specifically, on how an author's point of view impacts how a story is written or told. I loved some of the activities we did, and I'm excited to share them with you! We started the unit by creating an anchor chart together. (Are you shocked!?) Point of View Anchor Chart My students had an idea of what point of view was, but they needed to solidify their understanding of the types of third person point of view and well as second person…

Point of View Circle Map....looking at the same event from multiple perspectives in the story. This would make a great mini lesson or extension lesson. Create one situation, and then have students write down facts from each point of view. This is a great idea that I would use in my classroom.

Point of View and Bridge to Terabithia

This week we took a small departure from our main basal story to focus on something I haven't done in YEARS....Core Lit. The look on the students' faces, the twinkle in their eyes, when I handed them an actual book and told them we were going to read it in class was priceless. This, I think, is going to be a great adventure for us. So, with that, I wanted to share with you what we have done so far. First off, I chose to use Bridge to Terabithia for our first novel.

Many classrooms even do complete fairy tale units, and they provide a great way to learn more about storytelling.

Fractured fairy tales are so fun because they take a fairy tale that you are familiar with…

Differentiated Point of View Task Cards

If you have looked at the new Common Core Standards, then you already know that Common Core (RL.6 and RI.6) both want students to know some interesting things about point of view. They must know more than first and third point of views. At some grade levels, students must compare firsthand and secondhand accounts of information.
