Author's Purpose

I am wanting to teach a lesson on author's purpose and then have a writing portion with it. All I can think of is having them write a short paragraph and then have the rest of the class guess what their purpose was - entertain, persuade, or inform.

Wanting something quicker. Ideas? More than just reading something and telling the purpose. Actual sentences kind of writing. 😀

How about a cereal box activity? Some writing on a cereal box is persuasive, some is informational, and if you get one that has a kid friendly section you might find a part that is entertaining.

Then they could design their own cereal box with all 3 elements, either as a group or individually.

Take it a step farther by purchasing some cereal with all three types of wring on the box. Then cut an laminated as a sorting activity for students.

The cereal box idea sounds like a challenging but fun idea!
