Product Description
Looking for ways to introduce or review Author's Purpose with your kiddos? Then look no further!

Students will create an Author’s Purpose Trifold Lapbook {using a manila folder OR a large piece of construction paper}


→ Cover Pieces {to be placed on each front flap}
→ Pieces for students to create “mini-flipbooks” for P, I, and E {placed inside - see example}
→ Pieces for students to sort Author’s Purpose Clues and Title Examples according to P, I, or E
→ Original Author’s Purpose Song {to be placed on the back of the lap book}


→ Students will create a writing piece to either persuade, inform, or entertain. Use this at the end of your Author's Purpose unit as a way for students to show you what they've learned! Consider utilizing this as an independent or even partnered writing assignment.

→This activity is meant to be an interactive experience with the readers. Therefore, there is a space at the bottom of the final writing sheet that says “What is the author’s Purpose?” After reading their classmates P, I, or E example, students can lift the flap and view the Author’s Purpose.

This would make a great interactive bulletin board display!
