Author's Purpose Project, Paper Bag Book, and Activities
Author's Purpose is not as easy as it seems. With this resource, you can explain it, help students identify the look fors, practice with multiple texts, sort examples, and apply learning with real life examples. When the project is complete, students can refer to it with new reading.
HOW IS THE AUTHOR'S PURPOSE PAPER BAG BOOK ORGANIZED?
This paper bag book project hits all of the teaching points for Author's Purpose, and it can be used with small groups, as a work station, in interactive notebooks, or as an at home project. Students use the beginning pages to learn about each of the five author's purposes. Then, they practice with multiple texts of the teacher's choice. I suggest pulling a wide variety to ensure all five purposes are included. Other activities include a sorting activity and author's purpose in friendly letters.
