Point of View Sort
The skill of point of view can be quite complex. In our county, students are asked to know the different types of point of view (first person, second person, third person limited, objective, and omniscient) and find evidence to support which point of view the story is told from. Students are also asked two part questions on reading comprehension tests that range from asking specifically about the narrator and his/her feelings to how a story would be different if told from another character’s point of view. Sometimes a character trait is given and students are asked to find the best piece of text evidence that helps support the character’s point of view and how he/she feeling.
After seeing how many different ways point of view can come about in text and how many discussions can be held during and after chapter books, I decided to create task cards that had a mix of point of view scenarios and questions.
These eighteen cards follow a continuous story, so it’s important that the task cards are read in order. Students can pair up to read the cards, have discussions, and record their answers (recording sheet/answer key included). These cards could also be used as a whole class discussion starter, in guided reading groups, or for literacy rotations.
