Clip to ScrapBook #3

That seems awfully abstract for first graders, inner city or not. I could see talking about what we could learn from the pigs (be prepared, work hard, etc), but I have a hard time believing that my first graders could really grasp the concept of the wolf "representing" danger and the pigs "representing" personality types. They are SO very literal at this age.

Everything I've seen about author's purpose at this level is whether the author wrote something to inform, persuade, or entertain.
