This product provides two pieces to supplement your instruction on the three Author's Purposes studied in lower elementary school (persuade, inform, entertain).
Using the mnemonic of "PIE", the first piece provides a primary set to get your students thinking. This same activity will also be used as the exit slip.
The second component is a practice activity in which students will write about one topic (their favorite food) using the three purposes.
This activity is perfect for 2nd grade, but could easily work for 3rd.
