Use these 32 task cards to help your student identify first person, third person – limited, and third person – omniscient points of view. Each card includes a short, fictional passage and the three multiple choice options. Students will need to read carefully as several of these cards are tricky! In some cases the POV is not revealed until the end of the paragraph and in others, students must know that if a character states a feeling or thought, it is still third person – limited, not omniscient.
Both color and black line versions of the cards are included. A student answer sheet and an answer key is included, as well as five Challenge Cards which can be used to extend the activity. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
