Lesson: 1: First Person Point of View
Students will be able to identify and describe the first person point of view.
(I) will explain that point of view is the perspective from which a story is told to the reader. I will introduce first person point of view by explaining that the narrator is telling the story and is a character in the story. I will discuss how sentences written in first person usually use the pronouns “I,” “me,” and “my.” I will read the sentences written on chart paper (example is provided) and model how to identify which sentences are written in the first person.
(We) will read White Socks Only by Evelyn Coleman and determine the point of view in the book (first person). We will identify the clues in the book that helped us identify the point of view.
(You) will read the three paragraphs on the “Point of View” worksheet and determine which paragraph is written in the first person. You will explain how you determined the point of view of the paragraph. (Independent Practice is provided.)
