A weeks worth of engaging lesson plans to teach point of view. These lesson plans are designed to be low prep for the teacher, but keep your kids engaged and challenged the entire week!
There is a whole group and a small group lesson for each day, so that you can differentiate and reach each learner.
All the materials are provided, besides books. All the lessons are engaging, low prep, and rigorous for your upper elementary students.
Why these lessons?
- I saw that my students needed more engagement and relation to their real life in order to fully understand the skills, so I created these lessons to keep kids excited and involved the whole time.
- We start with a real life lesson, then practice as a whole group, work in a small group, work in partners, and finally work alone. We start with support on the skill and slowly take it away to really push the kiddos.
The lessons keep kids thinking the entire time and push them to reach their potential.
- These lessons just need to be printed, copied, and they are ready to go! Most activities require little work beforehand for the teacher which makes a teachers busy life easier!
The lessons include:
Monday- Whole group introduction lesson called "Who Did It?". Students all become characters and participate in a mystery experience to solve who stole the computer. While they are doing this they are comparing points of view.
Tuesday- Learn a song, go over an anchor chart, read "The Day the Crayons Quit" and then create a crayon by writing in a different point of view.
Wednesday- Listening to an audio story and discussing point of view. Then, doing a group project where the students read a fractured fairy tale and create a presentation to share with the class.
Thursday- Watch a series of videos to look at point of view. Then, read an original short story, that is provided, with a partner. The students will then change the point of view and rewrite the story.
Friday- Look at different images for point of view, read “Adventures to School”
by Miranda Paul, and create a poster.Then, give the assessment.
There is one small group lesson per day. You can do this with every group or just do the lessons you think the groups need. You differentiate them by what books you choose.
Monday: Play point of view matching and analyze different points of view.
Tuesday: Watch short clips and write them in a point of view.
Wednesday: Look through a stack of books to find point of view.
Thursday: Reread a leveled reader and complete a poster.
Friday: Read a leveled reader and then change the point of view to rewrite the story.
