Looking for a March activity to practice the skill author's purpose? This activity asks students to read 5 Facebook posts from Saint Patrick. Using a graphic organizer they will write the author's purpose for each post. There are 5 posts, one for each: persuade, inform, entertain, explain, and describe.

My students struggle with this lesson every year so I like to start with small paragraphs to begin practicing and gradually move into larger text. This resource begins with analyzing small passages to help students really understand the difference between each purpose.

I wanted all my students to practice authors purpose in this exciting way so I created different levels of text so students can practice on their reading levels. The 5 Facebook posts are each written with a 4th grade level, 2nd grade level, and a level intended for Newcomer EL or SPED students who struggle in reading. This ensures all students can participate in the fun AND practice the skill at the same time.

In addition to three levels of reading text, I have also included three different graphic organizers to help students find the author's purpose. There is also a word bank for students to use. This activity comes with everything you need to differentiate learning for all students.

There is also an available option to share the files digitally with students. Again, all three levels, are available through Google Slides. This could be helpful as students need practice learning on the computer. They are the same passages as the hard copies, just another way to differentiate to whatever your students need.

Disclaimer: If you want to use the online resources please be sure that your district supports students' use of Google Slides. I am not responsible for District-Blocked-Sites.
