This colorful file folder game allows students to practice identifying the author's purpose. They will read a card and determine if the author's purpose is to persuade, inform or entertain.
Students move along the game board each time a correct answer is given. The first player to the end, wins!
If you want, you can just use the 'task cards' with the recording sheet that is included OR play Scoot!
This is easy to assemble.

I like to have students play the game with a penny instead of a die. I have included two sets of rules. You choose which way you want to play. With a die or a penny. If you use the penny, this is how you play: You flip the penny. If it is heads, move one space. If it is tails move two spaces. It is cheap and files flat. I have included two sets of directions, so you can choose whether you want to use a die or a penny.
