Author's Purpose

I just love the PIE idea that is floating around the blogs about Author's Purpose!  There are a lot of great freebies out there!  So I didn't need to invent my own plans this week!  What a time saver!  I love our sharing community!


I chose a book for each purpose to share with the kids this week.

Persuasion - Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

  • Did the author try to convince me?
  • Did the author want to change my opinion?

Information - There's No Place Like Space (Dr. Seuss book) by Tish Rabe
  • Did the author give me facts?
  • Did the author try to teach me something?

Entertainment - There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves
  • Did the author try to make me laugh?
  • Did the author want to tell me a story?
  • Did the author try to amuse me?

I plan to keep a chart on all the books we read for the next few weeks and mark down the author's purpose for all of them.  That should help sink in the concept!!
