I haven't done a whole lot with point of view in the past, but this year in our most recent Storyworks magazine ( btw I LOVE this magazine!) there was a poem that was perfect for introducing point of view! The poem is called Theme in Yellow by Carl Sandburg. This poem is written in first person, through a pumpkin's viewpoint. You can see the poem by clicking here.
We then used a great freebie that I found on TpT by Chrissy Beltran. This resource has definitions and examples of the first and third person point of view. Click the picture below to download this great product!
We also added the term point of view to our reading notebooks. We are using Nicole Shelby's Interactive Reading Notebook and I LOOOOOVE it!! If you don't have it already, I highly recommend heading over to TpT and purchasing it! It is an excellent resource. It is really helping me make sure I am covering all of the CC standards.
Here is a picture of what we added to our notebooks.
I also read The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Dewalt. Such a cute story told through the crayons' point of views.
This week I plan on having my students write their own stories through an objects point of view.
What activities do you use when teaching point of view?
