Product Description
Author's Purpose: This craftivity provides a fun way to practice identifying an author's purpose for writing a short passage using the more advanced PIE'ED method:
persuade
inform
entertain
explain
describe

Students will read the five short passages (check out page 2 of the preview to see the passages!), and determine the author's purpose for writing each passage. Then, they will follow the student-friendly directions to assemble the pie craftivity!

I used to teach this skill using the PIE method, but quickly realized that my upper elementary students were not adequately prepared for state tests when I only used verbs like "persuade", "inform", and "entertain". A few years ago, I switched to the PIE'ED method and created my own materials to use. You can cllick on the links below to take a peek at my other PIE'ED products!
