This is a PPT lesson plan for Author's Purpose that uses the book "Eight Days Gone," by Linda McReynolds. There's also lots leveled questions that include knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, and synthesis. These questions were created in shaped stars so you can cut them out and gently tape them to your picture book. The PPT includes the Common Core standards used for the lesson (2nd grade). I also included extras, such as ideas, bookmarks, exit ticket templates, helpful books & websites. Be sure to read the notes section on each slide. I provide extra ideas, and answers to the questions there.
