Product Description
Author's purpose is important for students to learn and practice! Let them have fun and review with this engaging game that will make the skill of determining the author's purpose something students WANT to do! Works great for literacy centers or small group. Students will be begging to practice author's purpose with this activity! I’ve had many students ask to play at recess and even lunch!

What do you get?
U-Know Cards 56 cards with definitions or examples of titles and books...Students must state which type of author's purpose is being used on the card when they throw it into the pile.
Direction Sheet
Answer Key I use the answer key to differentiate learning, especially when a concept is still new. They can use it as a tool in the beginning until they practice more.

All 5 types of Author's Purpose Covered:
✓Inform
✓Persuade
✓Entertain
✓Describe
✓Explain

Also available WITHOUT Describe & Explain, too!!

What is U-Know?
U-Know is a fun and engaging card game where students practice topics in a repetitive way. I also use U-Know in stations or for early finishers throughout the year to spiral concepts for students. U-Know comes in MANY topics! So, once students learn the game, it will become a self-run station!

U-Know is played with students matching color/number to the card the previous player put down. Once they put their card down, they must read and answer. If correct, play moves on. If incorrect, player draws 2 new cards and play moves on. Students check answers with the included answer key.

➔Didn’t cover a topic? That’s ok. Just take those cards out! Students won’t even notice and the game will still be able to be played.
➔U-Know is meant to be printed in color. If you print in black and white, you could always add a little color with crayons before laminating.

This game can also be found in the following BUNDLES:
