Author’s Purpose is easy as PIE with the four sections of this resource! First, there is an interactive notebook page for students to identify key features of each type of Author’s Purpose. A checklist is also included for students to use to determine Author’s Purpose during independent reading. The task cards have students read a short passage about weather to determine the Author’s Purpose. Each type of weather includes an entertaining, informative, and persuasive passage. They can be used as a sort or on a task card recording sheet. Finally, there’s an Author’s Purpose Bingo game using book titles. Students have an opportunity to justify their reasoning for choosing the text for the Author’s Purpose they roll.
