Author's Purpose Task Cards are a fun and meaningful activity for students to practice this important skill. Partner work or small groups allow for students to share their thinking. Add to a literacy center for additional practice.
This resource comes with 2 sets of cards. Set 1 includes 20 passages for the following types of author's purpose: Persuade, Inform, Entertain and Explain. Set 2 includes 20 passages for (PIE) persuade, inform or entertain only. Both options are included.
Use as intended or as an exciting "Scoot!" game. Kids love to scoot!
*Please note that the PIE version has the same exact task cards as PIE2, however, the "explain" cards in the PIE2 set were replaced with more PIE cards. This enables teachers to utilize this resource whether they teach PIE or PIE2. Ask any questions;)
These task cards can be found in my **Best Selling** larger, more comprehensive Author's Purpose unit found here!
