These pie slices are used to help students identify the author's purpose of the text they are reading. They cut out the pie slice that represents the author's purpose for their book and write their evidence on the lines. There is also a blank pie slice so you can print out a class set of those and the students can write Persuade, Inform, or Entertain themselves. I have also used these Pie Slices for our class reading selections. Each time we read a selection, we fill out a pie slice and they attach them to a ribbon hanging from the ceiling.
*I prefer to print them on cardstock.
