***PLEASE NOTE: These task cards are also included in my Author's Purpose Units which are loaded with passages, activities, and graphic organizers:

Author's Purpose: 3rd Grade

Author's Purpose: 4th and 5th Grade

Why you'll love this resource:

  • The task cards give your students concentrated practice with author's purpose, so students get multiple opportunities to identify the author's purpose in one time frame.
  • Task cards seem less overwhelming than longer passages for many students.
  • Students view task cards as more of a game, which makes them fun!
  • It's easy to turn the cards into an actual game by adding a tic-tac toe on a white board or a board game.
  • The task cards may be used in a number of ways, from reading centers, to whole class, one on one, test prep, SCOOT, exit slip, and more!!!
