Do you need engaging and low prep 4th and 5th reading centers for identifying, describing and answering questions about point of view?
This reading center resource includes ten spinner centers for identifying and describing the point of view of a fiction story, as well as answering other questions related to the point of view.
Click here to see the BUNDLE of Reading Spinner Centers for 4th and 5th Grade.
The students will read the two stories, each written from a different point of view or perspective. Then they will spin the spinner to answer questions related to the point of view of the stories.
To “play” the center, the students will use a pencil and a paper clip to spin the spinner. When they spin a question the first time, they will answer the question. If/when they spin that question again, they will prove their answers with evidence from the text.
Answer keys and recording sheets are included for the centers.
Types of Questions
1.) Each spinner includes these two prompts:
*Is Story A written from a 1st person point of view or a 3rd person point of view?
*Is Story B written from a 1st person point of view or a 3rd person point of view?
2.) The other four questions or prompts vary. Here are some examples:
*What is one detail that Story A provides that Story B does not?
*What is one detail that Story B provides that Story A does not?
*Compare and contrast the narrators of each story.
*Write a new paragraph that continues Story A from the same point of view.
*Why did Claire not know that Steven was Aliyah’s cousin? Which story helped you determine your answer?
*How would the stories be different if written from the 1st person point of view through the perspective of Megan?
