Product Description
This colorful file folder game allows students to practice identifying the author's purpose for writing.

There are two versions of the game. Choose the one you want to use. I like to use a penny (heads-move one and tails-move two) because it is cheap and easy to store flat in the file folder. You can use a die, as well. This makes the game move along more quickly.

You may use just the task cards. A student recording sheet is included. Playing SCOOT with the task cards and recording sheet is also an option.

Students move along the game board each time a correct answer is given. The first player to the end, wins!
