Point of View

Point of View

Point of view refers to who is telling the story, as well as to opinions and perspectives of the characters. Teach your child to look for these clues that point to first and third person points of view. While it is not yet necessary to teach your child the terminology, it is important to teach them about what each type of point of view means. Key words such as I, me, we, and us point to the fact that a character is the one telling the story. Words such as they, she, he, and them point to the fact that a narrator is the one telling the story. Challenge your child to analyze the character's opinions and points of view about certain events in the text, too!
