We also worked on Author's Purpose today. We made flip books to put into our Reading spirals and discussed each type. Then we had an Author's Purpose scavenger hunt. The students had 15 books with 5 categories to fit them into. (Describe, Inform, Persuade, Entertain, & Narrate.) Entertain and Narrate are quite hard to decipher so we spent LOTS of time talking about them. Tomorrow is Study Island, so they will get to show what they know about Author's Purpose.
** I have uploaded the flipbook to my Teacher's notebook store and will be adding the scavenger hunt soon... Check it out!!***
