Product Description
This resource helps students learn to use text to determine the author's purpose for writing.

There are three different activities included in this file. The first is a set of task cards.

On each task cards, students read a short paragraph and decide the author's reason for writing. What makes these unique is that there are three cards on the same topic but the author's purpose is different.

For example, one card has an entertaining story about a train; another card gives information about trains; while a third card persuades readers to use trains as a form of travel. This allows students to compare the three forms of writing and see how the author's purpose differs.

✪ "These were great! I loved how it had 3 different purposes for one topic. It really had my students thinking. Also, I liked how the passages were short. This let my students have a lot of practice and stay focused in their reading." - Amanda

The second activity in this resource is a cut-and-paste worksheet. It includes six short paragraphs. Students read each paragraph and glue the correct author's purpose in the box.

This can be used as center work, homework, or assessment.
