This is a set of 28 author's purpose task cards with a Christmas theme. Students read a short paragraph and then decide if it was written to persuade, inform or entertain. There is an answer key and a recording sheet. This is a fun way to review this important skill.
IMPORTANT: Some of the passages are the same as the ones on my Christmas author's purpose SmartBoard lesson but not all.
Task cards can be used in a variety of ways including as a scoot game, centers or in small groups. They are in color but print fine in black and white as well. There is a recording sheet included as well.
