This is an Author's Purpose reference chart. I have it in my reading center for my students to help remember what the author's purpose is. It has examples and guided questions to help them figure out why the author wrote the story.
It is a word document so you can change the colors or add/change things as you see fit for your classroom.
Supports standard- LACC.2.RI.2.6 Identify the main purpose of a text, including what the author wants to answer, explain, or describe.
