Point of View Fun!
**Updated 2/26/15- Changed the font on the graphic organizers and fixed an error on TOU**
These graphic organizers and sorts feature 25 school themed examples of first person point of view, third person limited point of view, and third person omniscient point of view. The 25 examples are divided into five graphic organizers that represent the story of a class field trip to Maniac Mountain, a fictional theme park.
This set features engaging and challenging sentences that move students from the identification of each example to careful analysis. These graphic organizers will help prepare your students for the increasing rigor of standardized tests. I have successfully used these same strategies to help students grasp point of view.
Not only do students have to identify the type of point of view each example represents, but they must also rewrite the examples to fit the remaining two points of view. This is a highly rigorous activity that will help your students think more critically about the pronouns they must use and the characteristics that make each point of view distinct.
This point of view packet can be adapted into several lessons. Use the sorts first to teach and/or review each point of view. Be sure to cut the sorts out on cardstock and mix them up with the other examples. Class sets or partner sets work well for this. After reviewing the sorts, distribute the first graphic organizer and model a few examples before students complete the rest independently. Depending on the level of the students, you could use each graphic organizer on separate days for five lessons.
Answer keys are included for each graphic organizer.
