I love making educational and fun games for students! My games require little prep time for the teacher but easily fit into most ELA lessons. Please visit my store for other Point of View games and check out my Game Bundle for four games at a discounted price!
This is a fun game similar to U*O that teaches Point of View - 1st person, 2nd person, and 3rd person. Students can play in groups of 3-5. Directions and an answer key are provided for the teacher and students. Directions are included below.
Teacher directions: Print all 30 sentence cards, 12 Point of View name cards, 6 Skip cards, 3 Reverse cards, and 9 Change cards on card stock. Cut them out, laminate, and shuffle them in a deck.
Student directions: Shuffle the cards. The dealer will deal out 7 cards to each player. Place the remaining cards upside down in the middle with the top card to the side facing up. Starting to the left of the dealer, each player must lay down a card with any sentence in the same point of view, or a Point of View name card. For example, if the showing card has a sentence in 1st person, the next player can play a different sentence that is also written in first person or a card that says ‘First Person.’ A player can change the point of view from the card that is being played with a Change card. A player can use a Skip card to skip their turn if they do not have a card to play. The direction of play can be changed by using a Reverse card. If a player cannot play a card, they must draw from the deck until they have a card that can be played. When a player has two cards left, they must announce this to their opponents. The first player to play all of their cards wins!
I also have two other fantastic Point of View games in my store: Point of View Tic Tac Toe and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Point of View. Please check them out if you need additional activities for this skill for whole group instruction or cooperative learning groups.
