This is a bundled teaching pack that includes my Author's Purpose Powerpoint Presentation with Cloze Notes and my Author's Purpose Activity Sheets.
The powerpoint presentation includes examples and practice questions, and will help guide your students through learning author's purpose.
The activity sheets will help your students practice the skill with real texts and demonstrate their understanding with a fun (and tasty!) writing activity. The activity sheets include an author's purpose guide (leveled for basic, proficient, and advanced students), an author's purpose gallery walk worksheet, a detailed author's purpose organizer, and a printable author's purpose poster. Also included is a fun writing activity that involves EATING DOUGHNUTS!!
These activities were originally designed to help my 6-8th grade ESL students master author's purpose, but I have used them with students as young as 4th grade.
This is a great way to tie reading and writing together in a fun way. Aligned with WIDA ELD standards and the following Common Core State Standards:
