Point of View
- Point of view is a tool in literature used to reflect the point of view of the narrator.
- There are three major kinds: First person, which uses the pronouns “I” or “we”; second person uses the pronoun “you”; and third person uses pronouns like “he”, “she”, “it”, “they”, or a name.
- Think of point of view like distance between the reader and the narrator – first person is the closest and third person is the farthest.
- Clichés can be described as figures of speech that have become predictable and boring through overuse.
- They’re often metaphors or similes and because they’re unimaginative, you should try to avoid clichés like the plague – see what we did there?
- There are 26 letters in the English alphabet. Knowing the alphabet well is helpful for sequencing words in the correct order.
- Here’s a challenge – you probably know the alphabet from a – z, but can you say it backward from z – a? Give it a try!
- When two words start with the same letter, move to the next letter to see which comes first.
- Context Clues are words in a sentence that help you work out the meaning of a word that you don’t know (like a particularly long word, a word you’ve never heard before, or a word you don’t know the meaning of).
- Read the sentences below and use the context clues to figure out the meaning of the underlined word.
Example: An owl is a predator that waits until it is dark before going out hunting to catch a mouse to eat for dinner.
Meaning: A predator is something that eats other animals.
- The main idea is the point or topic of a paragraph. It’s easy to figure it out because you ask yourself this question: What is being said about the person, thing, place or idea?
- The main idea can occur at the beginning, middle or end of a paragraph.
Example: Summer is a great time of year to go to the beach. The one at Bondi in Australia has light-colored sand and is soft to walk on. The coastline is long and many people enjoy walking along it. Surfers enjoy the waves, children play in the surf and adults like to relax in the sun. Bondi is a fun beach for people of all ages.
Topic: Bondi beach
Main idea: That Bondi beach is a great place in summer.
- Subject-verb agreement means that the subject and verb must agree in number.
- This means that if the subject is plural, the verb must be plural too. If the subject is singular, the verb must be singular too.
Example: These clothes are too small for me now.
Sugar, flour and eggs are needed for this cookie recipe.
Grandpa likes to fish. My aunts like to fish too.
- A homonym is a word that sounds the same as another but has a different spelling or meaning. For example, “to”, “too” and “two” all sound the same when spoken but they have different meanings.
- The word “bat” can also mean sports equipment or a flying mammal.
Cause and Effect
- Cause and effect can be described as the relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other. Think of cause and effect like action and reaction – but the action doesn’t always have to come first.
Example: I don’t brush my teeth properly (cause), which is why I have many cavities (effect).
She missed the start of the movie (effect) because the train was delayed (cause).
- Text analysis is good for decoding, fluency, vocabulary, sentence construction and cohesion, reasoning, and working memory and attention.
