This activity can be used for reading centers, small groups, or independent practice. Have the students cut out their cards or you can cut them out ahead of time. I like to store my cards in baggies, so they are ready at the beginning of the lesson. Each student or group of students will need the 27 passage cards and the 3 “PIE” cards. I would recommend laminating the cards so you can use them again. The students must match the cards and place them underneath the correct “PIE” card. They must decide whether the passage is persuading, informing, or entertaining the reader.
