Product Description
I always tell my students that imagery is anything the author gives us to help make a movie of their writing in our mind. That could include sensory details, time of day, time in history, or dialect.
When we talk about author’s purpose, then it is all about the WHY.
Why did the author write this?
Why did they choose their characters?
Why did they choose the setting?
Why…
Combining imagery and author’s purpose is then a no brainer. The author uses imagery to help the reader picture the story they are telling. Once you can picture the story, you can put yourself in the author’s shoes and better understand the WHY’s of the writing.
I have combined my best practices/graphic organizers/ideas into one file to help you teach your students these two very interconnected comprehension ideas.
As a special bonus, I have included 5 fiction, high interest, one pagers if you are at a loss for fun text for your students to practice reading.
