Author's Purpose Anchor Chart

Monday, June 23, 2014
Today I am sharing my author's purpose anchor chart:

Author's Purpose PIE'ED Anchor Chart- take author's purpose to the next level for upper elementary students by using the PIE'ED Method!

Does it look a bit different than the author's purpose approach your are used to seeing? I have taught this more advanced version of Author's Purpose {PIE'ED} to upper elementary students (grades 4 and up) for several years now.  Check out this blog post if you're curious about why I switched to teaching Author's Purpose in this manner. (You will find additional FREE posters in this post!)

Also, click on the image below to access my 2-sided worksheet featuring 5 reading passages! All of the passages are related to the days of the week. You can use these worksheets as guided practice or independent practice... whichever best meets your needs!

Finally, if you are looking for related teaching materials, feel free to check out my store. The image below shows my bundle, but all of the items shown can also be purchased individually.

Teach your students to identify the author's purpose for writing. This author's purpose bundle includes many engaging activities. Five author's purpose terms are featured: persuade, inform, entertain, explain, and describe. Get PIE'ED in author's purpose!
