PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's a hands-on way to practice author's purpose! It also makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display!
persuade
inform
entertain

I have used this version with my 2nd and 3rd grade students. (I take it a step further and use the PIE'ED version with my 4th and 5th grade students, adding "explain" and "describe".) ALL grade levels have thoroughly enjoyed this activity!

Students color their pie and crust, cut it out, and glue it together. They write definitions for persuade, entertain, and inform. Then they read the passage on three of the pie slices, and label the author's purpose for writing each passage. (Student friendly directions with visual supports are included!)

Do your students enjoy craftivities as much as my 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders do? Would you like to integrate more hands-on creative activities (that still reinforce the standards) like this into your curriculum? I have several more learning craftivities available in my store. (Just click on the links below to take a peek!) Also, I have plans to create a few more, so feel free to follow me or check my store occasionally to see my newest products!

I like the comment about reducing it to put it in our writer's journal as a reference. My students really get excited about hands-on activities that they can interact with. It will drive the point home!

Bulletin board godsend! This really helped the kids master the skill. I had the kids paste onto a paper pie plate and we ate pie after their end-of-week assessment. Thank you for all of the great ideas in this packet that made learning this skill more fun and engaging!

You're welcome! Thank you for the feedback! I bet your students absolutely loved the real pie you brought for them. What lucky students they are! :)
