Teaching Point of View

There are lots of fun mentor text out there for teaching point of view, but here is a lesson I did in my class, as an independent practice, after teaching the skill through those great read aloud stories! This idea allowed all of my students the freedom to choose a topic or character that they were interested in. 

For this lesson, I chose a google image of two characters to use for my modeled sample. (the cat and mouse) I had my students choose an image that they could use for their own writing- characters from a movie, book, cartoon, sporting event, etc. 

First, I modeled from the cat's point of view in both first and third person. Students then repeated the process from their first character/object.

On the next day, I modeled the second character/object using both first and third person POV.
