This is a writing marathon that students will complete in their interactive student notebooks or just as an activity to apply their knowledge and skills of the four main types of author's purpose: persuade, inform, entertain, and share! The activity includes a directions sheet for students to glue into their ISN as well as a rubric. It also includes a teacher guide on how to complete the writing marathon with your students, mystery envelope pictures, two modeling examples of writing with two different author's purpose types(e.g. entertain & persuade). The students really enjoy the mystery envelopes and they usually get really creative with their writing using different author's purpose types, formats, and topics using the envelopes! Enjoy!
