PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I came up with this demonstration lesson for my fifth grade students who were struggling to understand the 3 basic points of view (first person, third person limited, third person omniscient).

This lesson begins with a teacher and a student role playing a skit in front of the rest of the class. The teacher and student hold up thought bubbles so that the audience can silently read what the characters are thinking.

After performing the short skit twice, you write a story about the role play using FIRST PERSON point of view. You write it as a class, the teacher writing under the doc cam or on the overhead, and the students copying the story in their reading notebook or on the reproducible papers that come with this product.

Next, write the passage in THIRD PERSON LIMITED point of view, and then write the passage in THIRD PERSON OMNISCIENT point of view.

Finally, students are ready to write three POV passages independently.

This lesson has worked extremely well for students who have struggled grasping the skill of determining the point of view that the author chose to use. After the guided practice and independent practice of writing their own POV passages, they seem to be better equipped to analyze another author's writing to identify the point of view used.
