Help your students learn about the author's purpose in this fun and exciting way! Different than the "easy as pie" technique, students will be introduced to three characters with character posters for each; Patty the Persuader, Ian the Informer, and Eddie the Entertainer. Each character helps explain to students the different purposes that an author writes a text. Students will then practice identifying the author's purpose with these characters through a variety activities including matching, cut and paste sorts, story responses, and station task card activities! With the use of this pack your students are sure to master the author's purpose!
