In fifth grade, author's purpose goes beyond the simple "Persuade, Inform, Entertain" method and students are expected to explain why the author included particular paragraphs. My author's purpose task cards are 100% aligned to the STAAR test and will help your students master 5.10A and 5.10Fig19D! They are perfect to use for independent practice, "scoot" games, tutorials, or workstations.
Each card includes a 2-3 paragraph story and 2 multiple choice questions. An answer key and student recording sheet are included.
