Use these 32 task cards to help your student identify first person, third person – limited, and third person - omniscient points of view. Each card includes a fictional paragraph and the three multiple choice options. Students will need to read carefully as several of these cards are tricky! In some cases the POV is not revealed until the end of the paragraph and in others, students must know that if a character states a feeling or thought, it is still third person – limited, not omniscient.
A student answer sheet and an answer key is included, as well as five Challenge Cards which can be used to extend the activity. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
These cards support the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.6 Describe how a narrator’s or speaker’s point of view influences how events are described.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.6.6 Explain how an author develops the point of view of the narrator or speaker in a text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.7.6 Analyze how an author develops and contrasts the points of view of different characters or narrators in a text.
