Point of View Worksheets

Identifying the narrator’s view point is an essential reading skill that is often assessed on standardized tests. It’s recommend that you discuss the narrative perspective of each text that you introduce to your students, but if your students need rapid improvement at identifying the narrator’s view point, then you’ll want to use these worksheets. These drill style worksheets will give your students ample practice in identifying the narrative perspective of texts.

The worksheets cover first-person, second-person, third-person objective, third-person limited, and third-person omniscient modes of narration. They require students to explain their answers, and sometimes highlight characters’ thoughts. And a lot of these point of view worksheets have online versions that can be completed on phones, tablets, and desktops. These Ereading Worksheets allow students to save, print, or email their scores and explanations as PDF files. These activities are compatible with Google Classroom and quiz results can even be posted to Facebook. Please comment below if you like them.

Also, I found your lesson on YouTube. “I come in the door, you come in the door, and he and she come in the door” opened the door to really understanding the Narrative’s Perspective of Point of View! Again, I thank you!
