The use of these cards will allow students to determine the author’s point of view from which he or she is telling the story. You will find two different types of cards:
• Odd numbered cards ask students to pick whether narrator is in first, second, or third person. If too easy, have students tell whether each is limited, omniscient, or objective.
• Even numbered cards ask students to be more specific: first, second, or third person limited, omniscient, or objective
• If even number cards prove to be too difficult, you may choose to have students cite whether they are first, second, or third person ONLY.
I suggest that you print out card templates, cut, adhere to index cards or cardstock, and laminate. I love the idea of task cards because they can be used year after year. Also, these can be used in a small group setting, partner work, or part of a center rotation.
