Description

Develop reading comprehension and critical thinking skills in young students with our The Narrator Lesson Plan.  This interactive lesson engages students to identify the narrator in texts and relate it to point of view. Students will also identify the purpose of the narrator in text.  Use this narrator lesson to develop both reading comprehension and written expression.

Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. Ask two students to be volunteers and complete some simple tasks around the classroom, sharpening pencils, watering a plant, coloring a picture, etc. As the students complete the tasks, have the other students sit in the carpet or circle area and watch as you narrate. For example, “Johnny stands up and crosses the room with a smile on his face. He is thinking this activity seems so silly. Now Robert is sitting at his desk, he’s coloring a picture.”
  2. Ask the students if they’ve ever heard stories where the character’s actions are described by someone, but it’s not a character in the book. Compare that to the scene with the volunteer students, saying” Johnny and Robbie were the ones doing all the activities, but they weren’t talking to you. I was the one saying what they were doing. I was something called the narrator. The narrator has a special job and purpose in books. Today, we’ll learn all about it.”
  3. Read the first example of the sample passage which is in first person. Introduce this as the story told from the character’s point of view. Notice the use of the words my, me, I, and mine. Explain that this shows it is the character speaking. In this case, the narrator is the person telling the story and is the character himself/herself.
