Teaching Author's Purpose



This week we are focusing on teaching our students about the author's purpose for writing. We have explained that there are three main purpose which is rememebered by PIE. 
P-Persuade
I-Inform
E-Entertain

The students were able to pick out of a jar one of the three main types of author's purpose.
The students that picked "P" had to write and persuade me not to give them homework.  The students that picked "I" had to inform me about something.  The students that picked "E" had to entertain me with a story about a fish.
