Product Description
This is a sample of a larger Author's Purpose unit I am currently working on.

I took the "Persuade," "Inform," and "Entertain" cards, cut them out, and glued them into pie tins. Next, I had pairs of students read the stack of passages I included (12 altogether). Students sorted the passages based on the author's purpose for writing them, writing notes on the back for why they chose that purpose. Afterwards, we played the game that's growing in popularity recently, Pie Face!

Please rate this product if you are enjoying it. I would love some constructive comments to help guide me as I create the bigger Author's Purpose pack as well! :)
