Product Description
Two sets of author's purpose task cards.
Review the three reason's author's write: persuade, inform, entertain.
24 task cards per set for a total of 48 task cards
Includes recording sheet and answer sheet

Two task card sets makes it easy for you to differentiate for your students. Students read the task card and then determine whether the author's purpose is to persuade, inform or entertain. These are great to use as a review or for test preparation.

You can use these task cards in many ways:
Scoot activity
Hang them around the room and have students walk around and read them/answer the questions
Center activity
Fast finishers or individual practice
Whole group (display the cards on a document camera)

There are 4 task cards to a page. You can print in color or in black and white. You can also print them on card stock. I recommend laminating them for durability.

***This is included in my Author's Purpose Bundle. Do not purchase this set if you have bought the bundle.
