Lesson: Author Purpose And Viewpoint
One of my favorite authors is Tommy DePaula I love his themes and illustrations I also like that you can find a Tommy book to teach any strategy or negotiation skill. Many of his books are based on his childhood memories and all of his books are about text connection, perspective, author’s purpose, generalization, prior knowledge, drawing conclusions, cause and effect, problem/solution… A teacher’s dream. Can go on!
We began by reading Art Lens and talking about the author’s perspective It was a little tough for some of my kiddos It took a bit of arguing and a bit of “who knows what” on my part to put my 2nd graders in the author’s shoes, but once they got there, they were running!
In creating this anchor chart, we discussed some of the things the main character says and does and what that might tell us about how the author thinks and feels.
Lesson Plans: Author’s Viewpoint
We project this writer’s point-of-view, but mine is just this sad little image. I thought I took pictures of the finished work but I can’t find them now for the life of me! Curse
We spent the next two weeks reading many of Strega Nona’s books I love these books, they are my absolute favorites! We talked a lot about themes, prior knowledge, text-to-text connections, and cause and effect
Tommy DePaula uses a lot of Italian words in the Strega Nona story, so we started compiling them into an anchor chart. Next year, I will have students use sticky notes and add them to the story as they find them We have also created these small Italian dictionaries The pages are cut out and stapled into a small book
Here are some graphic organizers my kids made We’ve compared, described, defined and structured in every way! I asked the students to write the text test in the reference frame next to their entry
Author’s Purpose And Viewpoint
We also did this little writing activity to remind Big Anthony of some important things! The girls were Strega Nona, the boys were Big Anthony My kids didn’t know what it meant to tie a stick to my finger! When I explained it, Little Nice said,
Sure, I was happy when most of my kids wrote down important things to remember when it comes to reordering, telling time, dividing words into syllables, etc. And then there was “When it’s time to go to bed, don’t forget to turn off the TV if you hear your mom coming. I got really worked up while taking pictures of them! Maybe I need a string on mine. Thumbs up to help me remember to take pictures.” does!
“When you play with your Legos, don’t forget to put them away If you didn’t there would be no more room for lunch and my little brother could pressure them
“When you write a letter don’t forget to write a greeting and closing because it’s not a letter it’s a card.” Good advice don’t you think?
Point Of View — First, Second, & Third Person Examples
We talked a lot about character traits and did a little sorting with Strega Nona and Big Anthony’s character traits.
Students created a mini art gallery of their favorite Tommy characters and wrote character traits on the back of their “canvases.” They then performed on their “museum floor”.
We created these beautiful Writer’s Study folders to hold all of our projects and display them on our desks! Someone, wanted, but, so, then we used the strategy to help us write a “sandwich summary”.
As promised, here’s a little donation It is a map of parentheses from whole to part to break the setting into its parts Students draw Strega Nona’s kitchen with important details and then break it down into its individual parts.
