This colorful file folder game allows students to practice identifying the author's purpose for a passage.
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!
This colorful file folder game is a great way to review Author's Purpose! Great for literacy centers, individuals, fast finishers, or whole class.

One version uses a penny, one version uses a die). I use a penny because it stores flat and is cheap! A die takes up more space in the file cabinet.
Pages 8, 9, 10, 11, 12: Laminate task cards and cut apart. Store in ziploc bag with a penny or die and game pieces. (I use colored paper clips or buttons as game pieces.)
Page 13: Cut out answer key, glue onto a piece of construction paper and laminate. Two labels: pick the ONE you want to use, depending on if you want to use a penny or a die. Tape on ziploc bag to store cards, die/penny, and game pieces. The tiny label is to glue or tape onto the tab of the file folder.
