Flippin' Friday - An Idea for P.O.V.

I am sooooo ready for the weekend!! But before I snuggle up on the couch for hours on end (hopefully)I wanted to share an idea with for...

Frame from Lovin Lit, Fonts from KG Fonts

This is an idea I had hoped to use on February 13th, but that did not work out so well for me and I just used it this week. One of my lovely, lovely students (no seriously, love her to death) said whilst cutting her interactive element, "We should have done this on Valentine's Day". And I was all like, ya, I know!!!

So, I used the envelopes from Krista Wallden and added tabs. The students cut it out and then cut the top part of the envelope off. They folded the tabs down, added glue and presto - a cute little envelope (the tabs overlapped a wee bit so I fixed that). They also cut out three hearts. On each heart we wrote a statement about point of view. The point of view presented in the story, an alternative point of view the story could have been told from and our own point of view. We used the story The Paperbag Princess - since it is a story we love and an atypical fairy tale we are using it to help us with point of view and making inferences.

Here is how they turned out.

She put hers in sideways!!

  1. I love the point of view notebook element! I'm definitely checking back tomorrow to see more pictures. Now, I just need to find a copy of a book to use or the one you used! :) Thanks for the freebie!
