This is an interactive game to assist students in selecting the author's purpose of a text. This game allows students to battle determining the author's purpose. Students will be competing one against another. The first one to hold up the correct piece of PIE-E wins the round. For additional points, I would ask students to provide their justifications of why they chose their piece of pie. Students LOVED this game and so did my assistant principal when she walked in for an observation!
Check out for my store for the link to free pieces of PIEE-E cutouts.
